Tax Division

Sheriff Ivy J. Woods is also the Ex-Officio Tax Collector in Jefferson Davis Parish.  The Sheriff's Office is the collector of taxes for the parish and some municipalities, and collects school and improvement district taxes and turns them over to each taxing district.  The parish is responsible for collecting all property taxes from the middle of November until the day of the tax sale, which is generally at some point in June.


 All taxes are to be paid before December 31st of the tax year or additional fees and costs will be accrued.  The Jefferson Davis Parish Sheriff's Office allows three ways to pay taxes:


  1. Pay online with a Credit Card (online payments are not accepted after the last Friday in April of that tax year.)

  2. Pay in person at:

    321 East Plaquemine Street
    Room 102
    Jennings, Louisiana 70546

    Enter the Courthouse through the front double doors and speak with the security inside, who will direct you where to go.  If you pay in person we will accept Cash, Money Order, Cashier's Check, or a Personal Check.  If you pay with a Cashier's Check, Money Order, or Personal Check, please make it out to: Jeff. Davis Parish Sheriff's Office.  Credit Cards and Debit Cards are not an accepted form of payment and no exceptions will be made.
