Jack Burson, alderman at-large,

Sales tax collection procedure questioned

The Eunice Board of Aldermen is asking city attorney Vernon McManus to give notice to the St. Landry Parish School Board about its failure to live up to an agreement for sales and use tax collections.
Jack Burson, alderman at-large, said the School Board for the past five years has failed to hire a qualified Eunice resident part-time to enforce sales tax collections in Eunice.
Burson said the School Board’s sales tax office is supposed to provide the city on a monthly basis a list of who is paying sales taxes.
