Last week Assessor Shelia Walker and Morehouse Parish Sheriff Mike Tubbs signed the 2017 Tax Roll at the Sheriff's Office Civil Department. Tax notices have begun to go out in the mail and should be delivered this week. Tubbs said. Once they receive them, Morehouse Parish residents will have until Dec. 29 of this year to pay, as December 30 is a Sunday and the 31st is a holiday. Taxes will become delinquent on Jan. 1 if not paid. Taxes can be paid in person at the Civil Department of the Sheriff's Office or by mailing them to 351 S. Franklin St. Bastrop, La. 71220.
