NEW ORLEANS, LA- September 12, 2011 - Orleans Parish property owners appealing 2013 property tax assessments will be notified by mail within seven to twenty days of their appeal hearing date. The letter, addressed to the property owner, will come from the New Orleans City Council, acting in its capacity as the Orleans Parish Board of Review.
The 2013 Property Tax Assessment Appeal Hearings will be held at the Lindy C. Boggs International Conference Center at the University of New Orleans, 2045 Lakeshore Drive. The letter will include the hearing date and time and offer contact information for those seeking additional information about the tax assessment appeal process.
Property owners are advised that the most expedient and effective method to handle a disputed real estate property tax assessment is to negotiate a mutually acceptable resolution with the Assessor. Should that become impossible, state law, provides a hearing process by which property owners can appeal their property tax assessments.
To comply with state law, the appeal process must end by October 19, 2012. Following the advertisement of a Request for Proposals, the City Council selected the firm of HGI Catastrophe Services, LLC to provide recommendations to the Board of Review and assist in the processing of Orleans Parish property tax assessment appeals through the hearing process.
