Double Taxation!

Before Richland Parish existed, the surrounding parishes made up the area we know today as Richland.  The areas known today as Start, Crew Lake, Wynn Island, and parts of Girard, were formerly located in Morehouse Parish.

While recently pouring over some old Supreme Court cases in Louisiana, I ran across this interesting case. Even though Richland Parish had been created by an act of the Louisiana Legislature, Morehouse Parish continued to tax the region that was formerly part of its boundaries.

After hearing the case, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Richland.  To read the ruling, see the information below.
