  80.480.  Assessment and collection of revenues. — All assessments on real and personal property within the limits of such town, which may be certified and transmitted to the board of trustees, from time to time, as provided in section 80.460, shall be taken and considered as the lawful and proper assessment on which to levy and collect the municipal taxes of the town, and the payment of all taxes authorized by this chapter shall be enforced by the collector in the same manner and under the same rules and regulations as may be provided by law for collecting and enforcing the payment of state and county taxes, and for that purpose it shall be the duty of the board of trustees to require the collector, annually, to make out and return, under oath, a list of delinquent taxes remaining due and uncollected on the first day of January of each year, to be known as the delinquent list.  It shall be the duty of the board of trustees, at the next meeting after such delinquent list shall be returned, or as soon thereafter as convenient, carefully to examine the same, and if it shall appear that all property and taxes contained in said list are properly returned as delinquent, they shall approve such list and cause an order of approval to be entered on the journal, and the amount of taxes in such list to be credited on the account of the collector; and shall also cause said delinquent list or a certified copy thereof, with the bills therefor, to be placed in the hands of the county collector, who shall give a receipt therefor and proceed to collect the taxes due thereon, in like manner and with the same effect as delinquent taxes for state and county purposes are collected.  The said collector shall pay over the taxes collected to the city treasurer, at the times and in the manner provided by law for the payment of county taxes to the county treasurer, and shall make the same statements and settlements for such taxes with the board of trustees, and at the same time as may be provided by law for statements and settlements with the county commission for county taxes, and all taxes shall bear the same rate of interest, and the same penalties shall attach to the nonpayment thereof when due, as may be provided by law in cases of county taxes.  A certified copy of any tax bill included in the delinquent list, approved by the board of trustees, shall in all cases be prima facie evidence that the amount therein specified is legally due by the party against whom such tax bill is made out, and that all provisions of the law and ordinances have been duly complied with, and that the same is a lien on the property therein described.
