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.
Seems as long as you have three and a half acres minimum you may qualify. For example one property worth $400,000 pays just over a grand a year in property taxes. WHAT, are you kidding me? No, all you have to do is go to the assessors office and fill out the paperwork and see if you qualify.
So, anyone living on at least this much land needs to go and give it a shot. Or contact the St. Tammany Assessors office for more information.
