I moved this discussion from welcome to here. @JennyBailey @Graham Buckell
I can’t find how to access searches for
poll books 1600s 1700s
property taxes 1600s 1700s
can anyone suggest how to do this

Rather than post a comment to an announcement, you would have been better starting a new discussion - much more likely to get noticed. I only spotted this by accident!
On Family Search, go to
Browse All Collections
Narrow your search to British Isles by using the menu on the left side
Type in key words at the top
Unfortunately this yields zero results for collections with poll or property in the title for the British Isles.
I believe there are such records to be found but as part of a film with other items and so the key words do not feature in the title.
I suggest that the next step is to use the method above to restrict yourself to British Isles and then browse the collection titles. There are not that many. Some have titles that sound promising such as land tax. Note that land by itself is not a useful search term as it is part of England!
Alternatively you may need to look for the locations that interest you and search within the sub notes to see if they have anything useful.
