The treasurer shall make out the tax receipt for the taxes paid as subsequent, and shall write on the tax certificate, "paid as subsequent taxes." The treasurer shall enter on the record of the original tax certificate sale the payment of subsequent taxes, giving the name of the person who paid the subsequent taxes, the date when paid, the amount paid, and for what year the subsequent tax was levied.
