Residents have until the end of January to pay because notices were sent out late
The city of Thibodaux extended the deadline for property-tax payments because the tax notices went out late.
The Daily Comet report taxes normally become delinquent after Dec. 31, but payments can now be made interest-fraee until Jan. 31.
Taxes that remain unpaid after Feb. 1 will accrue an additional 10 percent collection cost, besides interest fees.
