SJSO gives update on property tax issues
LAPLACE — Corelogic Tax Services is a third-party tax service company that collects tax payments from mortgage companies. Corelogic then sends one wire payment and an electronic file of all mortgage payments collected to the property tax department at the St. John Parish Sheriff’s Office.
Said electronic file allows the property tax department to post these mortgage company payments to the correct tax parcel/property. This process has been done for the past seven years and is done in numerous parishes in the state. This process typically has no issues and is done very quickly.
Unfortunately, this year the electronic file format sent to the St. John Sheriff’s Office by Corelogic had errors in it. The Sheriff’s Office has been in contact with Corelogic, and they are working on getting the electronic file’s format corrected so that the property tax department may correctly post these payments. The payment sent by Corelogic for 2020 tax payments encompasses 55 different mortgage companies and 5,231 tax parcels/properties.
If your escrowed tax payment is part of the 5,231 tax parcels being paid by Corelogic, it will be posted as soon as the corrected file is sent to the St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff’s Office. There will be no interest or penalties imposed on any of these parcels.
