Property Tax

Property taxes notices are normally mailed during the last week of November for that taxable year. Property taxes for 2013 become due upon receipt of the notice and become delinquent if not paid by January 2, 2014.  Payments postmarked by January 2, 2014 will not incur interest charges.

The amount of property tax due is based upon your tax rate and taxable assessment. The tax is calculated by multiplying the taxable assessment by the tax rate. The tax rate is the sum of the individual millages that were approved by voters for such purposes as fire protection, law enforcement, education, recreation, and other functions of parish government. The Jefferson Parish Assessor’s Office determines the taxable assessment of property.
