VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) - The Warren County Board of Supervisors has approved a number of requests from County Tax Assessor Ben Luckett to correct the county’s tax rolls.

The Vicksburg Post reports (https://bit.ly/1JYcwKV) that the requests were approved Monday.

Luckett says many of the errors occurred in 2014 and caused incorrect tax bills to go out for 2015. Correcting these errors led to an increase in the assessed value of real property in the amount of $954,674. The majority of that amount comes from an error in the valuation of property belonging to the company, Ergon in the amount of $936,180.

Luckett says Ergon was granted a tax exemption on a project that is not yet complete.

The county also approved other reductions. Luckett says most of the errors could be attributed to data entry mistakes.
