Townshends Act

To better collect the new taxes, the Commissioners of Customs Act of 1767 established the American Board of Customs Commissioners
The Townshend Acts imposed duties on, glass, lead, paints, paper and tea imported into the colonies The American Customs Board would generate considerable hostility in the colonies towards the British government
Tax paid the soldiers and other officials. The governor of massachusetts closed the legislature and brought in british troops to restore order in 1768.
Arits of Assistance: Allowed tax collectors to search for smuggled goods. Blank search warrant. The townshend act was not repealed until after the Boston Massacre to ease the tension between the colonies and the British.
The Townshend Acts were a series of acts passed, beginning in 1767, by the Parliament of Great Britain relating to the British colonies in North America
The acts are named after Charles Townshend, the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
In 1770, Parliament withdrew all the Townshend duties except the taxes on the tea, leading to a truce between the two sides in the years before the American Revolutions.
