The Orleans Parish Assessor’s Office will be holding question and answer sessions to help business owners understand how to log-in to the Assessor’s online portal to fill out their LAT 5 Business Personal Property Self Reporting Forms electronically at nolaassessor.com announced Orleans Parish Assessor Erroll Williams.
The sessions are free and will offer direct staff assistance regarding completion and online submittal of the form, as well as general questions about the form itself.
“We’ve continued to make the online submission process more user-friendly and as intuitive as possible,” said Assessor Williams. “We’ve seen steady growth in online submissions from year to year but we’re really still not where we’d like to be. A major focus of these sessions will be to simplify the online process for filers.”
