Attention property owners: Don't forget pre-pay tax option

Caddo Parish Sheriff Steve Prator wants to remind you that you can pre-pay your property taxes to avoid lump sum end-of-the-year payments.
Caddo Parish Sheriff Steve Prator wants to remind you that you can pre-pay your property taxes to avoid lump sum end-of-the-year payments.

You can estimate your future tax liability and divide the payments throughout the year.

Payments made either monthly or quarterly are deposited into an escrow account and applied to property tax bills when they come due at the end of the year.

Any additional taxes owed after the escrowed payments are billed on the annual tax notice. Overpayments are credited to the next year's taxes.
Pre-payments are accepted from Jan. 1 through Oct. 20.

To participate in the pre-paid tax program, submit a signed application to the Sheriff's Office Tax Department along with the prior year's tax notice or document listing the property description and related account numbers.

A copy of the application can be obtained by clicking on the tax button at caddosheriff.org or by visiting the Tax Department at the Caddo Parish Courthouse, 501 Texas Street, Room 101, in Shreveport.

For more information contact the Tax Department at (318) 681-0638.
