State law states that a public inspection, in which homeowners may review the information that the Assessor’s Office uses to assess your property value. The inspection is to give the taxpayer the ability to review the data and verify its accuracy prior to the tax rolls being generated. Once the roll gets certified, sometime in October, it will be too late to make any changes. After that, the only way to request a change will be to submit it to the Louisiana Tax Commission.
If you do not agree with your property assessment, you may file for a review. You can acquire the application for review in person or online. You can mail your request for review to the assessor’s office or e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax it to 985-809-8190.

After a review, if a property owner is still unhappy with their assessment, you may appeal to the Parish Council. The deadline for appeal is September 26th. All home owners requesting appeal must file an assessment review prior to requesting an appeal.
