Calcasieu Parish homeowners will catch a break in paying property taxes due to widespread damage from Hurricanes Laura and Delta. Most residents are knee-deep in renovations, relocations, or rebuilds after being dealt back-to-back storms in 2020. Due to the damage, the due date for property taxes has been extended.

Calcasieu Assessor Wendy Curphy Aguillard pushed the due date back to March 2, and developed the Disaster Reassessment and Disaster Homestead Continuation program to assist homeowners. Properties eligible for adjustments are as follows: homestead, real estate or buildings, businesses and personal property. For more details, call the Calcasieu Parish Tax Assessor's Office at 337-721-3000 or visit their website at calcasieuassessor.org.
