Welcome to the East Baton Rouge Parish Assessor’s web site. This site has been prepared to help you understand the functions of the assessor’s office. I hope the information contained within it will assist you in understanding the property tax process. This website includes information on homestead exemption, special assessment levels, tax sales, and adjudications, along with many other topics that you may find helpful.
As a taxpayer and property owner in East Baton Rouge Parish, each individual is concerned with being assessed fairly. The laws governing property assessments are enacted by the Louisiana Legislature. The guidelines for assessors to follow are formulated and administered by the Louisiana Tax Commission. All property taxes are calculated by using the assessed value of a piece of property and the current millage rate in the area in which it is located. All millages are voted on by the residents of East Baton Rouge Parish.
It is my desire as your assessor to properly interpret these laws, to assess all property in this parish fairly and equitably, and to serve the citizens of this parish in an effective, responsible, and courteous manner.
Our office will continue updating this website and will continue to expand on the information it provides.
As your assessor, I want to assure you that I will always have an “open door policy”. If at any time my staff or I can be of assistance to you, please don’t hesitate to call.
