Duties and Responsibilities
The Assessor is required to annually locate, class and assess all taxable property within the Parish, and is responsible for setting fair, uniform and accurate values for each parcel of real and personal property. The Assessor is also charged by the Police Jury to maintain current ownership maps of the parish. In addition to these appraisal duties, we work daily with local and national agencies to promote the economic well-being of the Parish and its citizens.
The Assessor lists and places a value on all real estate within the parish and also on personal property (which includes such things as machinery, office equipment, and similar items). Maps, records, and other documents are kept to help establish the value of such property. The Assessor presents these tax rolls to the Policy Jury for approval. He also helps homeowners file for homestead exemption, which allows some of the homeowner's property to be exempt from property (ad valorem) taxes.
