FAILURE TO PAY BEFORE TAX SALE
If the property owner fails to pay the amount owed, and the property is sold at the tax sale, the owner is subject to lose the homestead exemption. Property sold at the tax sale may be redeemed up to 3 years from the date of recordation. A 5% penalty and 1% interest charge per month will apply. The owner must contact the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office to redeem the property.
HAVE A MORTGAGE?
Homeowners should always first check with their mortgage company before paying a bill to avoid double payment. Anyone who purchased property within the year will more than likely have their tax bill mailed to the previous property owner, but the current owner is responsible for all taxes due.
For questions about assessments and property-related questions, you must contact the Lafourche Parish Assessor’s Office for assistance at (985) 447-7242.

Beginning this year, tax notices will also include any money owed as a result of a lien placed on property by Lafourche Parish Government. This could be as a result of grass abatement, demolition, or other work done on the property by Lafourche Parish Government or its contractors. Questions about these charges should be directed to Lafourche Parish Government by calling (985) 532-6229.
