PROPERTY TAX FORMS
The St. Tammany Parish Tax Collector utilizes different forms to assist the public with tax research and redemptions of property sold at the annual tax sale.
To request a tax bill for a property that is not owned by the requestor, please fill out a Request for Information Form. There is a $5.00 fee for this service. The form needs to be completed and mailed in with the payment to STPSO Property Tax Division PO Box 608 Covington, La. 70434
Properties that go to our annual tax sale must be redeemed by the owner to retain ownership. This form must be completed to start the redemption process.
Title companies, abstractors and attorneys will often use this form to obtain a three year tax research certificate from our office which is used in property sale transactions.
PROPERTY TAX SALE
Our annual Property Tax Sale is traditionally held every summer.
What is being “sold” at a tax sale is not land or buildings, but the amount of unpaid ad valorem taxes due for that tax year, along with any accrued penalties, interest, or other fees that have accumulated due to delinquency. Buyers unfamiliar with Louisiana Property Tax Laws are strongly recommended to consult with a legal adviser before bidding at a tax sale, since these sales are considered a “buyer beware” environment.
Anyone interested in bidding on properties at our annual Property Tax Sale must register online in advance. Registration will be advertised for each tax year.
