Mary Frost deceased

In reply to your letter of the 16th ultimo I am directed by The Commissioners of the Inland Revenue to acquaint you that they understand that a copy of the provisional valuation of the property has been served and that, so far as can be foreseen, and subject to any amendment which may be necessary consequent upon any alterations made in the provisional valuation, no claim for Incremental Value Duty will arise on the occasion of the death of the above named deceased

Until, however, the statutory opportunities of objection or appeal has been afforded to all persons entitled thereto, the Commissioners are not in a position to issue a formal notification stating whether or not any duty is collectible

Signed by Assistant Secretary

To Messrs Baker and Smith
