Finance Archives and Cadastres

Tax authorities
In 1849, the Provincial Tax Office was installed, in whose very comprehensive holdings there are, among other things, also the files of the Crown Land Administration, which was in charge of the administration of abrogated clerical masteries and the property of the study- and religion fund, which were taken over as predecessor-files. From the multi-layered actual files of the Provincial Tax Office there are to be mentioned, among other things, the Aryanization- and Restitution files. Subordinated to this authority was the Graz Tax Administration, founded in 1851, which contains many archives concerning companies and enterprises and is thus of great importance for the Styrian economy. In 1849 the district tax offices were created, of which, among others, there are files handed down to the tax cadastre or to the house- and property indices.
Of great importance are also the holdings of the "Finanzprokuratur" with files to tenure- and patronage issues and the Styrian-Carinthian Fiscal Office, where also files concerning tenure (since the 16th Century) as well as volition letters, materials to foundations and fiscal conflicts.
Cadastres and land surveying offices
Concerning this holding, the Tax Rectification by Maria Theresia from the year 1748 is to be mentioned, out of whose results the sub-repartition index emerged, whose serial numbers formed the basis for the Urbar-numbers. This holding is primarily ordered by rural districts and further by seignories (and suchlike). The next thing that was installed by the Province in regards to tax registration was made by Joseph II., who could orientate himself on the "Werbbezirke" and their subordinated tax communities. The so-called "Josephinischer Kadaster" (cadastre-system by Joseph II) was never realised, however. After 1817, the "Franziszeischer Kadaster" (cadastre-system by Franz I.) in which tax-communities were replaced by cadastre-communities, took place in order to access the taxation system newly. In the protocols to the Franziszeischen Kadaster, all parcels were registered with detailed information, as well as detailed coloured maps in the scale of 1:2880 were installed (indication drawings, reed maps, duplicates of original files). Starting with the middle of the 19th Century, tax performances had been registered in the large-sized overall estimate-operate, which was replaced by estate sheets. In part, also the holdings of younger land surveying offices are in the Provincial Archive.
