Revised assessed values for more than 25,500 parcels available at stcharlesassessor.com beginning Nov. 22
The St. Charles Parish Assessor’s Office has completed its emergency reassessment of all properties to capture changes related to the damaging effects of Hurricane Ida.
Between Nov. 22 and Dec. 6, all residents should review their newly assessed values. Residents may log on to stcharlesassessor.com and go to ‘Property Search’ to find their records by parcel number, last name, or property address. Click the search result to view.
Please note that the assessed value is listed at the top of the result, and estimated property taxes due with itemized millages are listed near the bottom.
Residents are asked to consider whether their reassessment is fair based on damage to their individual homes. If there is a discrepancy, residents should contact the Assessor’s Office at email@example.com or (985) 783-6281.
“We thought it was important to look at each property to provide the appropriate amount of relief allowable by state law,” St. Charles Parish Assessor Tab Troxler said. “To do this, we completed a mass reappraisal using the same tools as during a regular reassessment year.”
In early September, new aerial and street-level imagery was collected with the help of vendors and volunteer crews from across the state and country. While this data will be sufficient in most instances, it is subject to limitations.
“We know there will be some adjustments simply because we cannot efficiently capture interior damages or anything not easily seen on the exterior,” Troxler said. “This is the main reason we’re asking for the public’s assistance.”
All properties were granted a 10 percent reduction in assessed value across the board. Then, staff members assigned properties to one of four damage severity categories to inform additional reductions, if necessary.
“As many residents know, my goal was to make the reassessment process as easy as possible,” Troxler said. “My hope is that our work has produced fair and acceptable values for the vast majority of residents, and we stand ready to assist those in need of further review.”
Dec. 13 is the deadline to formally appeal reassessments to the Assessor’s Office. Reassessed values will reflect on 2021 property tax bills sent by the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office.
