LIVINGSTON, La. (AP) - Livingston Parish Assessor Jeff Taylor wants to use aerial photography to verify the sizes of homes and businesses for the parish's property tax rolls.
Taylor tells The Advocate he suspects a lot of information on those structures was incorrectly given to his office or has changed over the years.
Taylor says correcting those errors could add millions to tax revenue and could help reduce tax millages as everybody pays a fair share.
He says he has begun asking people with the various taxing bodies in the parish if they would help pay for the cost of the project. Some local officials said they want the Assessor's Office to provide more information before they make a decision.
