Property Tax Overview

Property tax notices are normally mailed during the last week of November for that taxable year. For example, property taxes for 2023 become due upon receipt of the notice and become delinquent if not paid by December 31, 2023.

The amount of property tax due is based upon your tax rate and taxable assessment. The tax is calculated by multiplying the taxable assessment by the tax rate. The tax rate is the sum of the individual millage that were approved by voters for such purpose as fire protection, law enforcement, education, and other function of parish government. The Washington Parish Assessor’s Office determines the taxable assessment of property.

If your homestead/mortgage company usually pays your property taxes, please forward the tax notice to them for payment. If not, property taxes may be paid through several other methods.
