Orleans Parish Tax Assessors rolls are now open, from July 16 – August 15, 2018. You may appeal your assessment from 7/23-8/20.

  • With with the exception of a few properties that recently sold, we did not see any assessment changes. 
  • We understand that the next city-wide re-assessment is for the 2020 tax year

Why is this Important?
The assessed value is used to determine your tax bill for 2019.

What should you do?
Starting July 16, the tax rolls should be open. You want to check your property values and also be sure that your homestead exemption (and any other exemptions) are correctly applied.

Visit http://www.nolaassessor.com Click on “property records”, accept their disclaimer and then search by address, owner name or tax bill number. The Total Value column shows the assessors fair market value. (Most residential property is assessed at 10% of that Total Value

Important – Make sure the assessor applied the homestead exemption ($7,500). If they list $0, they did not apply the exemption
