The St. Bernard Parish Sheriff’s Office, in accordance with Louisiana law, has mailed the 2017 property tax notices via U.S. mail to parish property owners and the taxes must be paid by Dec. 31 before becoming delinquent.
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 Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.
If a property owner has moved and hasn’t received their 2017 tax bill, they need to call the Sheriff’s Office to give their new mailing address so the tax bill can be sent to them, and they also must call or visit the St. Bernard Tax Assessor’s office to give their permanent address change.
The Tax Assessor’s office is located at 2118 Jackson Blvd., directly behind the Parish Courthouse in 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.
The Sheriff’s Civil Tax office is located on the second floor of the Sheriff’s Annex, at #2 Courthouse Square in Chalmette. The Annex – which is raised above ground – faces Pakenham Drive and is the second of two buildings directly behind the Courthouse.
Property taxes for 2017 are due by Dec. 31 and afterward are considered delinquent.
The Civil Division office, where such bills are paid, will be closed Dec. 22 through Dec. 26 for the Christmas holiday and will re-open at 8:30 a.m. on Dec. 27.
The office also will be closed Dec. 29 for the New Year’s holiday and will re-open at 8:30 a.m. on Jan. 2.
There is a drop box at the front entrance to the building for after-hours use. Tax bills can also be paid online on the Sheriff’s Office website at www.sbso.org. Go to the left side of the front page to a tan-colored box near the top which says Pay Property Taxes.
