Clerk of Court Explains Proposed Constitutional Amendment #1

Yesterday, Clerk of Court Eddie Holmes said “I’ve had some people call and ask about the Constitutional Amendments on the upcoming ballot. They are important, but as usual they are very confusing if you only read the ballot text.  This is my attempt to make them as simple as possible. These are a gross over simplification of the issues and I encourage everyone to read the PAR articles.” (see link below)

AMENDMENT #1: Tax Commission

If you vote…..

YES = I want there to be an single Tax Commission that oversees, collects and distributes ALL sales tax in the State.

NO = I want to keep the current system where a local agency in each parish collects and distributes sales taxes.
