City to Make 2019 Property Tax Bills Available on

NEW ORLEANS – On Thursday, Dec. 27., the city announced that 2019 property tax bills will be made available on the city’s website tomorrow, Friday, Dec. 28, and paper bills are being mailed to all Orleans Parish property owners. (Mailing began Wednesday, Dec. 26.) Property tax payments are due on Thursday, Jan. 31, 2019. Details were shared in a press release.

Property owners may view and pay their property tax bills in full online at, starting today, Dec. 28. To view the tax bill online, you must provide the tax bill number located on a current or prior tax bill for that property. Property owners can use the assessor’s website, at, to determine their tax bill number by property address. There is no convenience fee to pay using your bank checking account (E-Check). Credit or debit card payments are accepted, but a 2.49 percent processing fee is added. 

Alternately, property owners may mail their payments to P.O. Box 60047, New Orleans, LA, 70160-0047. Using the payment stub provided on the bill will ensure prompt and accurate posting. Mailed payments must be postmarked by January 31, 2019, to receive timely credit. The city reminds property owners who intend to pay in person at City Hall (Bureau of the Treasury, Room 1W40), that coming in early or mid-January avoids the long lines that occur at the deadline. Paying online has no handling fee when bank checking accounts (E-Check) are used, and enables payments to post quickly (overnight as authorized).

For questions about property tax payments, please call the Bureau of the Treasury at (888) 387-8027.
