NEW ORLEANS, LA – December 27, 2013 – (RealEstateRama) — Today, the City announced that 2014 property tax bill images are available on the City’s website and paper bills are being mailed to all Orleans Parish property owners beginning today, December 26, 2013. Property tax payments are due on Friday, January 31, 2014.
Property owners may view and pay their property tax bills in full online at www.nola.gov/pay-taxes. To view the tax bill online, you must provide the tax bill number located on the current or a prior tax bill for that property. New property owners can use the assessor’s website, at www.orleansassessor.com external link, to determine their tax bill number by property address. There is no convenience fee to pay using your bank checking account. Credit or debit card payments are accepted, but a 2.49% processing fee is added.
Alternately, property owners may mail their payments to P.O. Box 60047, New Orleans, LA, 70160-0047. Using the payment stub provided on the bill will ensure prompt and accurate posting. Mailed payments must be postmarked by January 31, 2014 to receive timely credit.
The City reminds property owners who intend to pay in person at the Bureau of the Treasure in City Hall, Room 1W40, that coming in early or mid-January avoids the long lines that occur by the end of January. Paying by mail is easy, efficient and accurate, and avoids payment lines completely. Paying on-line is very convenient, has no handling fee when bank checking accounts are used and enables payments to post quickly (overnight as authorized).
