The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office will be conducting their first online tax sale auction of properties with delinquent taxes on Wednesday, May 16 from 9:00 a.m.—4:00 p.m. During the sale, computers and CPSO Tax Division employees will be available on the second floor of the Old Calcasieu Parish Courthouse for those needing assistance in the bidding process.
To participate in the tax sale, interested parties must register on-line at https://taxsale.cpso.com. Registration is available through Friday, May 11 at midnight.
The online auction will replace the traditional tax sale held each year at the Parish Courthouse. In the past, traditional sales require anyone desiring to participate in the process to be present when the auction is being conducted. Online auctions will allow access to a greater number of citizens who will now be able to bid on properties from a computer instead of in person.
On-line information will include a list of properties, a plotted map, satellite images of the properties, the amount of delinquent taxes owed, and answers to general questions about the tax sale process.
For questions or more information, please call the CPSO Tax Division at 491-3680.
