it’s value and not on whether it’s paid off this does not make sense. In Louisiana taxes are based on the home’s assessment (value). I am very pumped about getting the stinkin’ mortgage paid more than anything else. That will certainly make our shovel bigger to throw at retirement and a little bit of fun.
How would paying it off change the assessment?
My dad’s taxes are lower than mine, we live in the same city, and his house has a garage. His house is paid off.
