In Orleans Parish property tax is due by the end of January of each year. This year the Parish is going to send out a supplemental property tax bill which should arrive sometime during the spring of 2017…yes, a supplemental property tax bill – interesting concept. If you thought you paid your taxes for the year – not quite. This additional tax is for 12 years and the homestead exemption doesn’t apply to it. May not be the amount but a supplemental tax – whose ever heard of such a thing.
Per the Times Picayune:
The owner of a $350,000 home would pay an additional $87.50 in taxes each year — and another $25 for every additional $100,000 in home value. Commercial property owners would pay $35 for every $100,000 in value.
