Thousands to receive tax notices

in

Thousands of Lincoln Parish residents will receive a notice from the tax assessor’s office in the next week or two.
Parish Tax Assessor Pam Jones said she will send out approximately 3,000 notices for re-assessments on oil and gas wells and business personal property.
“The law says if it’s not a reassessment year then you only have to send notices to those (whose property value) increase by 15 percent or more,” Jones said. “In the case of (business) personal property, I choose to mail them every year, because (the value) changes every year.”
