Notices are going out for the Morehouse Parish 2013 Tax Roll.

Morehouse Parish residents will have until Dec. 31 of this year to pay. Taxes will become delinquent on Jan. 1 if not paid.

"We're getting this out two to three weeks earlier this year," Sheriff Mike Tubbs said. "This will give people more time to make arrangements."

Taxes can be paid in person at the Civil Department of the Sheriff's Office, online at or by mailing them to 351 S. Franklin St. Bastrop, La. 71220. Note that online payments will be charged a convenience fee.
