Posted: November 18th, 2015 | Filed under: SBSO News

The St. Bernard Parish Sheriff’s Office, in accordance with Louisiana law, has mailed the 2015 property tax notices via U.S. mail to parish property owners and the taxes must be paid by 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 30, 2015.

These notices were mailed to the address on file as provided to the St. Bernard Parish Tax Assessor’s Office. Property owners should have received these notices by now.

If anyone receives a tax notice for property they no longer own, please notify the sheriff’s Civil Tax Office at 504-271-2504 during regular business hours – Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. – and 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday.

If a property owner has moved and hasn’t received their 2015 tax bill, they need to call both the Sheriff’s Office to give their new mailing address so the tax bill can be sent to them and must call or visit the St. Bernard Tax Assessor’s office to give their permanent address change.

The Tax Assessor’s office is in a building at 2118 Jackson Blvd., directly behind the Parish Courthouse which is on West St. Bernard Highway, Chalmette. The Tax Assessor’s number is 504-279-6379.

The St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office only maintains the address change for the current mailing. The Assessor’s Office keeps the permanent address.

Property taxes for 2015 become delinquent after 4:30 p.m. when the Sheriff’s Office Annex Building closes for the day on Dec. 30. The Civil Division office where such bills are paid will be closed New Year’s Eve.

Tax bills can be paid at the Sheriff’s Civil Tax office located on the 2nd-floor of the Sheriff’s Annex, at No. 2 Courthouse Square. The Annex – which is raised above ground – faces Pakenham Drive and is the second of two buildings directly behind the Courthouse. There is also a drop box at the front entrance to the building for after-hours use.

Tax bills can also be paid online to the Sheriff’s Office at its web site at www.sbso.org by going to the left side of the front page to a tan-colored box near the top which says Pay Property Taxes

The Civil Tax office will be closed Dec. 24 and 25 for the Christmas holiday and will re-open at 8:30 a.m. on Dec. 28. It will also close Dec. 31 and Jan. 1 for the New Year’s holiday, then will re-open at 8:30 a.m. on Jan. 4.
