The #LOUISIANAPLEAGUE is an initiative in Louisiana to help better understand the state’s finances and provide a sound understanding of the current and future needs of Louisiana citizens. The first step was to collect a collection of $55 million in back taxes from individuals, businesses, and political entities in Louisiana. After discussing the project with its donor base, the project team realized that the amount needed to accurately track all state taxes would be impossible. The team mapped each tax on a limited number of key points around the state and compiled the data on their Google spreadsheet, which became their dataset for tracking those key metrics.
