Assessor: Rolls Open Today Through Aug. 15

Orleans Parish Assessor Erroll Williams

NEW ORLEANS – New Orleans property owners who wish to discuss the taxable assessment on their property with the Assessor’s Office may do so during the Open Rolls period, announced Orleans Parish Assessor Erroll Williams. The tax rolls will be open weekdays beginning today, Monday, July 17, to Tuesday, Aug. 15, from 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

         Property owners may visit any of the Office’s three locations:


• City Hall

1300 Perdido St.

4th floor


• Algiers Courthouse

225 Morgan St.

1st floor


• Lakeview Christian Center

5885 Fleur De Lis Dr.

2nd floor



         Visiting with the Assessor’s Office at one of the locations above is regarded as an “Informal Appeal.” Property owners may bypass this step and file a “Formal Appeal” with the Orleans Parish Board of Review online here.

         To file online at, click the E-File link on the left side of the Home Page then click Appeal of Taxable Valuation. This link will be operational from Monday, July 24 – Friday, Aug. 18 until 4:00 p.m.

         “You do not dispute the property assessment because you think your taxes are too high,” said Assessor Williams. “That is a discussion to take up with the taxing authorities. You should see me because you think the value placed on your property is inaccurate due to estimations on its size, comparable sales or market values.”

         To contest an assessment value, individuals are advised to have an assessment letter and any additional documentation to support their claim, such as a recent appraisal, a builder’s contract, photos or insurance coverage of the property, said Assessor Williams.

         No appointments are necessary; individuals will be assisted on a first-come, first-serve basis at all locations.
