Natchitoches Parish is maintaining level tax collections, according to Natchitoches Tax Commission Administrator Jerry McWherter. There’s no large increases or decreases and everything is staying at +/- 2% on either side of even.
Collection rates are consistent as well as streams of revenue. Vehicle sales also did very well. School Board collections are up, but this is due to the new tax that went into affect last July so all collections show as increase over the last year, but McWherter says the Tax Commission is seeing a consistent rise in the collections.
