A dab here, a dad there, and each politician will say it's not enough to hurt, but soon 4% becomes 10% then 101/2 then 11 then 12. At a time when everyone is hurting it's time for the political spendthrifts living off the working folks get a grip on reality, AND STOP THE MADNESS. But since they won't, go vote NO ON ANY TAX INCREASE FOR ANY REASON.
Our chance to vote against a sales tax !

The police jury wants this tax only for themselves and wants the city to pass another tax for garbage service when they have been cooperating by sharing this one tax that is expiring. The jury is uncaring during these hard times and don't care if the people who put them in office are overtaxed. Vote NO on the tax and vote to oust all the jurors next election.

Vote all the police jury out. The new tax they want is to redistribute the sales tax and keep it all for the parish when presently the tax is being shared by the whole parish (city /outside city) for garbage pick-up. Now they want the citizens of the city to pay their new tax plus an additional tax to have their garbage picked up . Vote no on this double taxation scheme. Don't pass the proposed sales tax in April.

Thanks for the details. I was wondering how it broke down. It seems like there is a recent increase in sales tax. I am afraid to total all the taxes I pay. I would probably stop working and turn to crime because it would be tax exempt. How long can these people get away with this? How far will they have to go before everyone is sick of it enough to stand up and do something? We control this government and we have the power to change it!
When will people stop voting in every tax that is put before us?

The Winn Police jury called a special meeting, July 10, 2013, where the jury voted to put on an October ballot a 1% sales tax The jury is calling this tax proposal a tax renewal, but the constitution nor LAWS OF THE STATE of Louisiana have no such thing as a RENEWAL TAX. What they want is a replacement tax for the one that is expiring. When the old tax's life ends after a certain period that the people voted on when it passed it is a dead issue and can't be resuscitated or renewed. The people have to vote for or vote against a NEW tax as a replacement tax.
The jury learned their lesson when they tried to pass a new 1% tax in April for the jury's use only, cutting out the town people of any of the tax collections. The people soundly rejected the proposal!!
