LA Rev Stat § 39:1002 What's This?

§1002. Payments constitute statutory impositions

Payments in lieu of ad valorem tax, fees, and other charges to be paid by a lessee to a political subdivision, industrial development board, or a public trust whose property is exempt from ad valorem taxation pursuant to R.S. 9:2347(M), R.S. 39:996, R.S. 51:1160, or any other provision of law authorizing fees and charges to be imposed on a lessee, up to the amount that would be due if the property were owned by a private entity and subject to ad valorem tax, shall constitute statutory impositions within the meaning of R.S. 47:2128. Provided that the local tax collector is notified in writing of any required payment in lieu of ad valorem tax, the tax collector shall collect such payments. Additionally, upon notice in writing from the political subdivision, industrial development board, or public trust whose property is exempt from ad valorem taxation that fees and charges constituting statutory impositions have not been paid, the tax collector shall collect the monies owed and enforce payment in the same manner as for ad valorem taxes. A pledge of the payment of such amounts which constitute statutory impositions, if any, to secure obligations of an industrial development board or political subdivision, shall automatically be subject to a tax equivalent lien in the same manner as obligations payable from ad valorem taxes.
