When the assessment has been made, the court will fix the dates within which the assessment
shall be collected. The county clerk shall make out an assessment list, or book, giving alphabetically
the name of the owner, and the boundaries of the land, the number of acres, and the
amount assessed against each tract, and the clerk will make the same substantially
in the form used for state and county tax books, and when so made the clerk will certify
the same to the trustee of the county, and it shall be the duty of the trustee of
the county to proceed at once to collect the assessments within the dates prescribed
by the court. The trustee will pay the amount collected on the assessments to the county clerk,
to be paid out on the cost and expenses under the orders of the court; and for collecting
and paying over the assessments, the trustee will be allowed as compensation for collection
and paying over the funds, two percent (2%) of the amount collected and paid over.
