slidell louisiana property taxes: Tired of High Property Taxes? Then Buy a Tree Farm - 07/14/09 05:05 AM
I have been looking at several fine homes on forested land in the Folsom area of St. Tammany Parish lately.  I have stumbled upon several homes that pay less taxes than I do.  I asked several home owners but none would really answer the question until last week.

slidell louisiana property taxes: Property Tax Appeals - 10/13/08 11:44 AM
Just a reminder for residents of St Tammany Parish that this coming Thursday is the deadline to appeal your new property assessment.  I have already written two letters to residents to give them a fair market value of their home.  The assessments were raised since four years ago.  As you know in this difficult market we are currently in, many will not sell for this new amount.  Don't give up without a fight.  This is your money not theirs.

slidell louisiana property taxes: St Tammany Property Taxes - 09/15/08 11:56 AM
Property owners in St. Tammany parish will have from Oct2-Oct16 to review their assessments and appeal them in writing to either the Slidell or Covington office.  These dates were changed because of hurricane Gustav.  Here is a link to access the website and view your taxes for the upcoming year.
