Supervisor wants county to get property back on tax rolls

NATCHEZ — Adams County has seventy-two parcels of land that County Supervisor David Carter characterizes as “not doing anything for anybody.”

Carter says that land should be back in the hands of Adams County’s taxpayers. If he can, Carter tells The Natchez Democrat he wants to organize a land sale to make that happen.

The lands to which Carter referred were forfeited to the state because the property owners failed to remit the taxes owed on the land. Some have been sitting on state rolls since the early 1980s; at least one parcel goes as far back as 1975.

Carter says unproductive properties both suck the value of the properties around them down, and while the landowners surrounding the properties are paying taxes, those lands don’t generate any kind of revenue.
