Tax notices being returned to LPSO; investigation underway

Returned tax notices in Livingston Parish have been reprocessed

LIVINGSTON PARISH, LA (WAFB) -

UPDATE

The United States Postal Service (USPS), the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office, and the Livingston Parish Assessor’s Office have been working to find a solution to the issue of hundreds of tax notices being returned.

LPSO says the returned mail and addresses have been reprocessed and the USPS has offered more support through a national database of addresses in the hopes of identifying deliverable addresses.

ORIGINAL

The Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office says a large number of tax notices are being returned to their office stamped as “undeliverable" by the United State Postal Service (USPS).

LPSO officials say most of the notices are from those living south of the interstate towards Port Vincent in the Denham Springs area. The office wants to assure people they are in contact with USPS, who is looking into the matter.

In the meantime, anyone who has not received their tax notice can log on to www.lpso.org and click the “Taxes/Sales/Fines” tab to search for and pay their property taxes. Those with questions should call LPSO at 225-686-2241 during normal business hours.
