§5529. Supervision of collection of taxes by legislative auditor

The legislative auditor may supervise the collection of licenses and taxes to the end that each tax collector shall faithfully and diligently perform his duty. In the event of gross neglect on the part of any tax collector, the auditor may require him to give an explanation which shall be considered by the supervisor jointly with the commissioner of administration, and if they agree that the tax collector is negligent, they shall give the tax collector reasonable notice to correct any apparent neglect. If the tax collector fails to comply with the notice, they shall order the depository to withhold payment of the checks of the sheriff's general fund until the neglect is remedied. Any sheriff or tax collector shall have all legal remedies reserved to him for any injustice done him or for any portion of the fund unjustly held.

Amended by Acts 1977, No. 591, §1; Redesignated from R.S. 33:1427 pursuant to Acts 2011, No. 248, §3.
