Download: St. Tammany Assessors Office Senior Freeze Application
We at Fire District #1 would like to clarify so recent inquiries about the St. Tammany Senior Freeze. This 'freeze' is available to anyone who is 65 or older and with an adjusted gross income of $70,484 or less based on your 2014 year or prior tax return.
NOTE (from the Assessor's Senior Freeze Affidavit):
THE ASSESSED VALUE WILL BE FROZEN AT THE CURRENT MARKET VALUE WHICH MAY NOT BE THE CURRENT ASSED VALUE ESPECIALLY IF ACQUIRED WITH THE LAST 18 MONTHS OR FROM SOMEONE WITH A FREEZE. (SENIOR, DISABILITY, VETERAN'S, ETC.)
To clarify, it is only your property/structure value that is frozen not the millage rate, fee, or special tax that is frozen. Any millage tax, fee or special tax will be calculated against your frozen property value. As long as you remain qualified for the senior freeze benefit, your value is frozen regardless of any future reassessment periods.
