  2.  The collector shall receive taxes on part of any lot, piece or parcel of land charged with taxes; provided, the persons paying such tax shall furnish a particular specification of the part, and if the tax on the remainder of such lot and parcel of land shall remain unpaid, the collector shall enter such specification in his return, to the end that the part on which the tax remains unpaid may be clearly known.

  3.  If payment is made on an undivided share of real estate, the collector shall enter on his record the name of the owner of such share, so as to designate upon whose undivided share the tax has been paid.
