Sales and Use Tax Rate Increase

District #1/City of Natchitoches

 

On May 30, 2000 the Natchitoches Parish Police Jury had enacted legislation to lock in District #1 boundaries, which consist of everything outside the city limits of Natchitoches.  This means that as the city annexed areas, District #1 still retained the same percent of sales and use tax.  All taxable transactions in the annexed area require an additional 1% percent sales/use tax to be collected.  This new tax will affect all businesses, deliveries, repairs and other taxable services that are performed in these areas. SEE THE BELOW TAX TABLE FOR THE NEW INCREASED TAX STRUCTURE.

The tax rate for all other City of Natchitoches businesses, not in an Economic Development District, remain at 5.5%
