Sample Property Tax Report for a East Baton Rouge Parish, LA property


Louisiana does not have a statewide property tax. The property tax is a local tax imposed by local government taxing districts (e.g. school districts, municipalities, counties) and administered by local officials.

Market Value

Market value has been defined by The Supreme Court as the sale price of real estate as agreed upon between a willing buyer and willing seller, with neither being under duress to buy or sell.

Market value = $162,000
Assessed Value

Assessment is the basis upon which taxing authorities tax a property. In Louisiana, the assessed value is determined as a percentage of fair market value and taking into consideration the classification of the property subject to taxation. Louisiana Law dictates that all Land - commercial and residential - is assessed at 10% of market value. Residential buildings are assessed at 10% and Commercial buildings are assessed at 15% of market value.

Assessed value = $16,200
Exemptions And Taxable Value

Taxable value represents the assessed value less any tax exemptions that apply. Several exemptions are available in the East Baton Rouge Parish that may lower the property's tax bill.

Assessed value $16,200
Homestead exemption - $7,500
Taxable value = $8,700
Property Tax

Property tax is calculated by multiplying the taxable value with the corresponding millage rates. The rates are expressed as millages (i.e the actual rates multiplied by 1000).
Current tax represents the amount the present owner pays including exemptions.
Base tax is an estimate of what an owner not benefiting from any exemptions would pay.
Actual taxes might differ from the figures displayed here due to various abatement and financial assistance programs or to non ad-valorem taxes.
