LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - It's an old cliche - "The only thing certain in life are death and taxes." But, you do get to vote on the taxes.

On Saturday in Calcasieu Parish, residents get to go to the polls on two important propositions. One is a property tax for courthouse and jail maintenance. The other is strictly for those residents living in unincorporated areas of the parish.

To find out what it all means to your pocketbook, check out the featured videos to the right.
