When buying a home, it’s always wise to take into account what the property taxes will be. Calculating property taxes is fairly simple. The Orleans Parish Millage Rates for 2013 are as follows:

Eastbank:               .14827

Westbank:             .14896

Fire & Police millage:   .01047

Here is an example of how to calculate the tax:

$100,000               Sales Price

X 10.0% 

$10,000 Assessed Value

-$7,000                  Less Homestead Exemption

$2,500                   Taxable Value


x.14827                 Parish Millage for Eastbank



x .01047                Fire and Police Millage



Note: There are no “Total Excemptions” in Orleans Parish except for certain charitable or educational organizations. If a property is assessed $7,500 or under it is exempt from parish tax but not from fire and police tax. The parish millage includes fire and police millage.

 Parish Taxes are due January 31 for the upcoming year, and are delinquent February 1.
