LIVINGSTON, Louisiana — School officials say the Livingston Parish School Board may have to reimburse some taxpayers after finding an error in taxing district boundary lines.

Six years ago, The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/1H34qsc) the school board drew updated lines to move property owners west of the town of Livingston and in Satsuma into the Livingston taxing district.

Since then, voters have approved a tax to pay for upgrades to Walker-area schools. Though the district lines did not affect the election, officials say when it came time to send out tax notices, some residents who had been moved into the Livingston district were billed for the new millage in the Walker district.

On Tuesday, the school board filed a petition for declaratory judgment, asking that the property owners who were unfairly taxed be reimbursed.
