Welcome to the Lafayette County Assessors/Tax Collectors web site.

Named for Revolutionary War hero, General Marquis de La Fayette, our county was formed in 1836. Situated in the north central portion of Mississippi, Lafayette County is noted for its small town appeal. Home to the University of Mississippi and Pulitzer Prize Winner William Faulkner, it is a county rich in history and culture. Diverse medical facilities, excellent educational opportunities and expanding economic development also attribute to our growth as well as our national recognition as one of America's prime retirement communities.

Thank you for visiting our web site. Please feel free to contact us with any comments or suggestions.
