§2056. Compensation; Orleans excluded
Ex-officio tax collectors throughout the state shall be paid as provided by law for the payment of sheriffs. For the seizures, sales and tax deeds made by each tax collector, they may be allowed the same costs which are allowed by the law to sheriffs for mileage, seizures, sales and sheriff's deeds in judicial proceedings; provided that they shall not be allowed to charge for any services not actually rendered, for any seizure not actually made, nor for any mileage not actually traveled.
Where property has been adjudicated to the state, the ex-officio tax collector shall be allowed and paid for making acts of sale, having the same recorded, and furnishing the Register of the State Land Office with a certified copy thereof, a fee of one dollar and fifty cents for each name contained in the act and shall be allowed their expenses for advertising, not to exceed the rate as fixed by law. The fees and expenses shall be certified to by the Register of the State Land Office on the deposit with him of the acts, audited and warranted for by the auditor and shall be paid by the treasurer out of any funds in his hands realized from taxes.
The tax collectors throughout the state shall receive the same rate of commission for collecting the parish taxes as for the collection of state taxes.
