Coronavirus Office Hours Update

The Tax Collector’s Offices located in Bay St. Louis and Kiln are open with limited access, as we ask that you wait outside until your turn its visit a clerk’s window. Both offices are operating at normal hours of 8 AM to 5 PM Monday – Friday. We are accepting payments for real estate and Personal Property taxes, Mobile Home Taxes, Solid Waste Fees, as well as Tag & Title processing.

Thank you for your patience in this matter.
