A. In accordance with the provisions of Article VII, Section 3 of the Constitution of

use tax shall be authorized to participate on any commission established for the collection

of such taxes.

(3) The expenses of the central collection commission shall be paid monthly by the

taxing authorities levying a sales and use tax on a proportional basis; however, the cost of

authorities within the parish levying a sales and use tax.
