  2.  The said collector shall make due return of all levee tax books each year to the secretary of the board of supervisors of the aforesaid levee district, and shall pay over and account for all moneys collected thereon each year to the treasurer of said district at the same time when he pays over state and county taxes.  Said collector shall in said levee tax book, verify by affidavit his said return.  The said secretary shall each year, within ten days after the return of said collector is delivered to him, prepare and certify to said collector a levee back tax book containing the list of lands and other property so returned by said collector as delinquent, deliver the same to him and take his receipt therefor, and said collector shall proceed to collect such delinquent levee taxes and demand payment therefor in the same manner as herein provided for the collection of current levee taxes.

  3.  Before receiving the aforesaid levee tax book the collector of each county in which lands or other property of the levee district are located, shall execute to the board of supervisors of the district a bond with at least two good and sufficient sureties in a sum that is double the probable amount of any annual installment of said tax to be collected by him during any one year, conditioned that said collector shall pay over and account for all taxes so collected by him according to law.  Said bond after approval by said board of supervisors shall be deposited with the secretary of the board of supervisors, who shall be custodian thereof and who shall produce same for inspection and use as evidence whenever and wherever lawfully requested to do.
