Any Connection?

I have no idea whether there's any connection to the Mayor's statement about sales tax collections, what I found deals with license renewal fees, but this is interesting:

City to Renew Business Licenses by March

(New Orleans, LA) The City of New Orleans announced today that the 2006 Occupational License Renewals have been mailed to business owners and March 15, 2006 has been established as the deadline for renewal fees to be received by the Department of Finance.
"We're ready to get our businesses up and running so that our economy can thrive, and to do that we must be sure that they are in order so that they can operate to their fullest capacity. This not only brings money back into our City but also helps bring local businesses operating away back home," said Mayor Nagin.

Business owners are requested to visit the City's website,, to renew their Occupational Licenses online. Businesses are also encouraged to make monthly sales tax payments online. Tax returns and payments are due on the 20th of each month following the taxable period. Businesses unable to file electronically must make copies of a previously used blank return form to reuse each month and must include a valid e-mail address at the top of each form.

Online services are available for use from 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. at City Hall, Room 1W15, Bureau of Revenue.

Business owners that may have to mail the license renewal forms or sales tax returns should allow sufficient time for mail to reach City Hall as payments received after the deadlines will be assessed late fees.

Checks should be made payable to:
The City of New Orleans
Department of Finance
Post Office Box 61804
New Orleans, LA 70161-1804

For more information, please contact the Mayor's Press Office at (504) 658-4940.

As I said, that's renewal fees, but there must have been some deferment on last year's sales tax receipts. Although, Len's comment about big ticket items could explain some the unexpectedly high sales tax receipts.

Unrelated item: Midura and Batt on channel 6 at 10:30 tonight. I mean WDSU, so 7 on cable, not the government or public access channel or whatever 6 is.
