Fact is the place is awful in the summer months. I've been here 34 years and still can't get used to all the heat. If you can get past that then I guess it's not so bad. At least we have the Zwolle Tamale Festival to look forward to every October>
The heat in TX is no better.

we have a 1640 sq ft home, 3.85 acres of land with bayou/gulf access from the back yard in a very rural area, our taxes are $75.00 a year. I believe I read La has the lowest property taxes in the nation.

Overall taxes in Louisiana isn't much different than in Texas (depending on your income and home value).

Louisiana has very low property taxes with a large homestead exemption that benefits lower and middle class families who own homes but in order to make up for the low property taxes we have a substantial amount of sales taxes and some income taxes as well.

Another side-effect of this structure is that a lot of programs are run by the state instead of the parish since the money comes from the state and not the parish via property taxes.
