A Message from
Assessor Glenn Waguespack
Fair and equitable assessments are the main goal of this office. To help accomplish this goal, we use the latest mass appraisal and statistical software to develop valuation models based upon recent sales. By using valuation models, we are able to eliminate any bias. Fairness in property taxation cannot be assured if assessments are not based upon what your property is worth—“Fair Market Value.”
The Louisiana Tax Commission, the assessor’s governmental oversight agency, regularly conducts ratio studies to check for fairness and equity in property taxation. This office must comply with the Louisiana Constitution, laws enacted by the Louisiana Legislature and rules and regulations of the Louisiana Tax Commission.
From this website, we hope to disseminate information concerning property taxes and answer your concerns and questions.
