Heir Property

Asked over 2 years ago - Collierville, TN

Currently my mother and I pay taxes on heir land that has not been divided amongst the heirs, how does she go about getting it separated so each heir can pay taxes on their portion and not have only 2 people to pay taxes yearly on the entire property? The land is located in the state of Louisiana.
