Civil Division

The Sheriff is the ex-officio collector of state and parish ad valorem taxes, property taxes, and license fees as provided by law. As tax collector, the Sheriff also conducts the sale of property for nonpayment of taxes.

Notice: For the first time ever, the 2016 annual tax sale for delinquent ad valorem property taxes will be held online ONLY at https://laonlinetaxsale.com on 5/25/16. Registration to participate in the sale is open 5/11/16 through 5/23/16. 

These properties are sold to the public for the amount of delinquent taxes due, plus any accrued interest, costs and other statutory impositions. If a property is sold at tax sale, the property owner has three years to redeem the property from the purchaser by paying the purchaser the purchase price plus a five percent (5%) penalty and one percent (1%) interest per month from the date of the tax sale until the date it is redeemed. Tax Sales are conducted annually, and bidding is open to the public.
