Meridian, Miss. The Lauderdale County Tax Assessor's Office will be open one Saturday per month, 8 a.m. to 12 noon, until April.
This is to accommodate homeowners who need to file for homestead exemption, but can't get to the office during regular business hours.
The deadline to file for homestead exemption, or changes in your status, is Apr. 1.
The dates for the additional business hours are:
The exemption may be claimed on your primary residence only, and it lowers the amount of tax you pay on that property.
You only have to sign up one time for the exemption, unless you change your deed for some reason, such as moving to a new address, changing your name, or you turn 65.
