Section 11-51-54

Maintenance, etc., of separate accounts and funds for general and special taxes.

The county tax collector shall not be required to make or keep a separate account of any special taxes collected for any such municipalities but shall keep such account only in gross of the total tax levied by the municipality.

If any part of the tax collected by the municipality is set apart by law for any special purpose, the treasurers or persons acting as such for such municipalities shall, as the law may direct, keep a separate account and distinct fund, as required by law, arrived at and set apart by the treasurers from the amount paid into the treasury by the tax collector in proportion as such special tax levied bears to the total taxes levied by such municipalities, and the special taxes received by such treasurers shall be disbursed by them as required by law.
