Don’t Fall Flat on Your Assessment. The Property Tax Appeals Deadline is August 18, 2023!

The Orleans Parish tax rolls are open for public inspection, and the deadline to file an appeal related to the assessment is no later than 4:00 p.m. on August 18, 2023.

Louisiana requires that all properties in a parish be valued or reassessed every four years, and 2024 is a quadrennial year. As such, property tax assessments in Orleans Parish for tax years 2024-2027 will reflect market values as of January 1, 2023, and the 2024 values have been available on since of Monday, July 17, 2023. Property owners will also receive assessment notices by mail.

The 2024 assessment rolls for Orleans Parish will be open for public inspection from July 17, 2023, through August 15, 2023, weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The rolls may be inspected in person at the following locations:

  • City Hall, 1300 Perdido, 4th Floor
  • Algiers Courthouse, 225 Morgan Street, 1st Floor
  • Lakeview Christian Center, 5885 Fleur De Lis Drive, 2nd Floor

According to the Orleans Parish Assessor, Errol Williams, all the property in Orleans Parish will be assessed this year rather than a quarter of the property being assessed in each of the four years of the quadrennial period.

In Louisiana, residential properties are assessed at 10% of their fair market value, and commercial or industrial properties are assessed at 15% of their fair market value. It is this assessed value to which the millage rate is applied to determine what taxes are owed on a property. There are also exemptions available based on a taxpayer’s age, disability status, or status as a disabled veteran or nonprofit entity.

If a taxpayer wishes to appeal an assessment, they may do so online from Monday, July 24, 2023, until 4:00 p.m. on Friday, August 18, 2023, at or in person by providing the necessary documentation to the Assessor’s office. It should be noted that appeals are only viable if they are based on an error in the valuation of property, including mistakes related to a property’s size or the values of neighboring properties at sale.
