1955.  Assessment of property adjudicated to the state

After property has been adjudicated to the state, it shall be assessed, during the period allowed by existing law for its redemption, in the name of the person to whom it was assessed at the date of the sale.  During the period allowed by existing law in which the owner of the property is permitted to redeem it, the tax collector shall not again sell the property under the continued assessment aforesaid while the property remains in a condition of forfeiture to the state, but the assessors of the several parishes of the state shall designate such property as adjudicated to the state, and list and assess it separately from all other property.

In the parish of Orleans, property adjudicated to the state shall be listed separately by squares or subdivisions in the same manner as other property not in a state of forfeiture.

The continued assessment, or any erroneous assessment in the name of the former owner, or any action of the tax collector in receiving taxes under the continued assessment, or other erroneous assessment, and any continued possession of the property by any former owner during the period allowed by law for the redemption of the property, shall not be considered or construed by any court of this state as an estoppel of the state from claiming the property, or taking physical possession thereof, after the adjudication of the property to the state and during the period of time allowed by law for the redemption of the property, nor as affecting in any way the title of the state to the property, or to its right of possession thereof.
