Good morning. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.

No, there is no such law. Transferring your home into a Revocable Living Trust does not impact your right to your homestead exemption. Because it's a revocable trust still under your control, you will still be afforded all of the advantages provided by the Louisiana tax laws. The Louisiana Constitution was amended in 2006 to ensure this homestead exemption would still apply to all persons transferring property into revocable living trusts. Therefore, you have no worries.
