The county commissioners, or the board for the assessment and revision of taxes, as
the case may be, may, in their discretion, issue their precepts to the elected or
appointed assessors of the respective wards, districts, boroughs, towns and townships,
on or before the first day in March of each year, for the assessment of such persons
as may remove into the respective township, ward, borough, town or district since
the last assessment, and for the reassessment of such property as may have been transferred
since the last assessment, and for the assessment of those who may have been omitted
from the last assessment. And it shall be the duty of such assessors to make such assessment, and return the
same before the twenty-fifth of May. For such service the said assessor shall receive, out of the county funds, such
compensation as may be fixed by the county commissioners, not, however, exceeding
the per diem compensation fixed by this act.
