Now is the time to sign up for the “over 65 freeze.”
Lincoln Parish residents who claim homestead exemption, are over 65 years old and have an annual adjusted gross income (husband and wife combined) of less than $67,670 are eligible to freeze their current assessed value. This freeze applies to the property’s assessed value only and not to the millage rate, which may change.
