Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator said he won’t roll forward on tax millages given the opportunity during the month of June. Louisiana law allows tax recipient bodies to adjust property tax rates every year to the maximum amount approved by voters. These rates area commonly called tax millages. “Because of increases in sales taxes and property values, revenues generated by services, and belt tightening by the Sheriff’s Office, we’re not going to take advantage of collecting the full authorized millages and raising taxes on property owners,” Prator said. “The Sheriff’s Office will adjust its millages so we don’t collect any more property taxes than last year.” The Sheriff will continue to only collect 13.47 rather than the maximum authorized millage of 14.94 – a difference of $1.5 million. Prator’s decision affects only the Sheriff’s Office and not other tax recipient bodies or governmental agencies for which the Sheriff serves as the ex officio tax collector.
