uations of all property taxable for State and county purposes, together with a list of all persons taxable upon occupations, in their respective districts, and shall, on or before the first Monday of November of the year preceding the next triennial assessment in such counties, file the same with the said Board for the Assessment and Revision of Taxes; and thereupon the said Board shall examine and revise the said valuations, increasing or decreasing the same, as in their judgment may seem to be proper, or adding thereto such property or subjects of taxation as may have been omitted; and after such revision the said Board shall, by rule, fix convenient times for the hearing of all appeals from the said assessments of valuations; and after the hearing of said appeals, and after making whatever changes may be considered proper, the valuations, as so ascertained and revised, shall stand as the valuations for the assessments of all county and State taxes until the next triennial assessment, and shall be made every three years thereafter. With power, however, in the assessors to revise the said assessments, according to right and equity, between the triennial assessments, by adding thereto new, increased or omitted subjects of taxation, and the revising of valuations if it is proper to do so; and, upon request by any taxpayer, he shall at any time receive from the Board a statement of his taxable property and its valuation. When the triennial assessment shall be fixed, either for the whole county or in districts thereof, notice of that fact shall be given by publication in not more than two newspapers of the county, and of a time or times at which appeals will be heard. After hearing the appeals, the Board shall take such action in regard to them as may be right and proper; after such action on the appeals, any taxpayer who is dissatisfied with the assessment upon his property may, within thirty days from the final fixing of the said assessment and valuation, appeal to the court of common pleas of the county; and it shall be the duty of the court to at once hear and determine said appeal, and, if necessary, make such change therein as may be proper. In case of any change by the Board, during the intervals between the triennial assessments, as provided for in this section, if there be any increase in any particular assessment, or the addition of any omitted subject of taxa. tion, the taxpayer affected shall, if a resident of the county, have written or printed notice left at his resi. dence, at least ten days before the change is made, and, if a non-resident, then the notice shall be posted on the property, and such taxpayer may appeal, as provided above, to a court of common pleas, and such court may take action as provided above in case of
