I applied for a dicount on my property taxes because i live off of ssi and my property tax doubled. i fax the application, but i do not get the feeling it will be read. i am 100% disable and have 3 children. i cant afford this. we are now in a recession, and you would think that some compasion would be necarssary. i am a lacombe resident and i live in a rural area with a mixture of trailers and houses. i live in a house, but i bet the ones in the trailer were exept. please we will be homeless if this continues.

I hear you... We have a house in St. Tammany, even though we don't live there much... I have not seen out tax bill yet this year because we have not been home in 5 months, but I wonder...

Real estate values have been in decline for several years across the U.S. Hmmm. this only shows that assessed value and appraised value are two totally different things.
