§1903.  Powers and authority

A.  The tax assessors shall enumerate and list and assess property as directed in this Chapter and be subject to all the obligations prescribed by law.  They shall prepare and have ready their lists showing the valuations assessed by them and lay the same before the tax commission within the time and in the manner prescribed by R.S. 47:1987 and 1988.

C.  No assessor shall, as a consideration for appointing any person as a clerk, be allowed to contract with the person for a less sum than the salary allowed by law to clerks of assessors.  Whoever violates the provisions of this Subsection shall be fined not less than one hundred dollars nor more than five hundred dollars or imprisoned for not less than one month nor more than six months, or both.
