LIVINGSTON - Livingston Parish sales tax revenue rose 7 percent in December, compared with the previous year, marking the 26th straight month that tax receipts have increased.

The Advocate reports more than 70 percent of the sales taxes collected in the Denham Springs Economic Development District are still being used to pay off $50 million in bonds used for infrastructure and construction of the building that houses Bass Pro Shops.

Denham Springs, the parish's largest municipality, saw a 9 percent rise in its sales tax receipts.

Total sales tax income across the parish rose from $5.8 million in December 2011 to almost $6.2 million in December.
