The Orleans Parish Assessor’s Office invites property owners to review their valuations for the 2015 tax year once they have received their property assessment letters in the mail.
From July 15 to August 15, property owners from across Orleans Parish may meet with a representative of the Assessor’s Office at any of three locations: · the 4th Floor of City Hall, 1300 Perdido St.;
· the Algiers Courthouse, 225 Morgan St.;
· the Lakeview Christian Center, 5885 Fleur De Lis Dr. 2nd Floor.
All three locations will provide public inspection of the assessment rolls weekdays until August 15th from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
No appointments are necessary; individuals will be assisted on a first-come, first served basis.
Individuals who disagree with their valuation should submit documentation to support their claim, including a recent appraisal, a builder’s contract, photos or casualty insurance coverage of the property.
If a property owner is unable to come to one of the three office locations, they may file an online appeal starting Tuesday, July 22.
This online service requires the same documentation, but there are benefits of filing online which include:
· Real-time appeal status. The property owner can see the up-to-date status of his or her appeal at any time of day or night. If there is more than one appeal, the filer can easily see status details from one screen.
· Communicate with the Assessor’s office on your schedule. The filer can ask questions and provide additional information to the Orleans Parish Assessor’s Office on his or her schedule. The filer must upload supporting files like documents, photos, PDFs or emails.
· Safety and security. All communications are strictly confidential and secure. The Resolution Center is accessible from any computer or mobile device, with the filer’s unique username and password.
