What is the Union Parish Property Tax?

Proceeds from the Union Parish Personal Property Tax are used locally to fund school districts, public transport, infrastructure, and other municipal government projects. Property tax income is almost always used for local projects and services, and does not go to the federal or state budget.

Unlike other taxes which are restricted to an individual, the Union Parish Property Tax is levied directly on the property. Unpaid property tax can lead to a property tax lien, which remains attached to the property's title and is the responsibility of the current owner of the property. Tax liens are not affected by transferring or selling the property, or even filing for bankruptcy. Property tax delinquency can result in additional fees and interest, which are also attached to the property title.

In cases of extreme property tax delinquency, the Union Parish Tax Board may seize the delinquent property and offer it for sale at a public tax foreclosure auction, often at a price well under market value. Proceeds of the sale first go to pay the property's tax lien, and additional proceeds may be remitted to the original owner.

Union Parish Homestead Exemption

For properties considered the primary residence of the taxpayer, a homestead exemption may exist. The Union Parish Homestead Exemption can reduce the appraised valuation of a primary residence before calculating the property tax owed, resulting in a lower annual property tax rate for owner-occupied homes.

Getting a Homestead Exemption may also help protect your home from being repossessed in the case of a property tax lien due to unpaid Union Parish property taxes or other types of other debt.

In most counties, you must specifically submit a homestead exemption application to your county tax assessor in order to enjoy the tax reduction and other benefits available. To get a copy of the Union Parish Homestead Exemption Application, call the Union Parish Assessor's Office and ask for details on the homestead exemption program. You can also ask about other exemptions that may exist for veterans, seniors, low-income families, or property used for certain purposes such as farmland or open space.

Union Parish Property Tax Deduction

You can usually deduct 100% of your Union Parish property taxes from your taxable income on your Federal Income Tax Return as an itemized deduction. Louisiana may also let you deduct some or all of your Union Parish property taxes on your Louisiana income tax return.
