Welcome to the Cameron Parish Tax Collector's Office where we strive to provide you with courteous and professional service. From this site you will be able to find general tax information.
The parish collector is the collector of taxes for the parish 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 first day of December to the day of the tax sale. By statute, the collector is required to turn over all tax revenue to the taxing district at least once a month.
All taxes become delinquent after December 31, and bear monthly interest of 1% after that date.
If you have questions about taxes owed or concerns about your tax statement, please call the collector's office at (337) 775-5826.

You may call our office after that date to check if a payment has been made.
