[APG Public List] Kentucky tax lists question

I have encountered several cases in the 1800-1820 period where a taxpayer  
with land in two or more counties is listed only in the county where he  
resides. For example, over the course of several years, a man is  listed in 
Mercer County tax list with 80 acres in Mercer and 100 acres in  Gallatin 
County, but he does not appear in Gallatin County tax lists. I have two  
questions:
 
- Is this a common occurrence?
- Did counties have some kind of reciprocal arrangement in which, say,  
Mercer County collected tax for Gallatin and transmitted it to Gallatin?
