meaning of "tithe" on personal property tax

Can anyone direct me to a resource for understanding the meaning of :
"One tithe 2 horses", etc. on Personal Property Tax records of the late 1700s in VA?
Any other help on understanding how this assessment was made in regards to the specific mention of "Mulattoes" and "Free Negroes" after a person's name would be helpful.
Thank you very much.
