Property owners who filed their appeals for real estate property tax assessment with the Orleans Parish Assessor on or before August 20, 2019 will be receiving their letter from the New Orleans City Council, acting in their capacity as the Board of Review, prior to September 10th. The letter will notify them of the hearing date, time, and location of their property appeals hearing, according to the Board of Review.

Additionally, the letter will include: 1) telephone contact information, 2) what owners/representatives will need to bring to the hearing, and 3) how to obtain additional information.
The Board of Review advises property owners to work with the Orleans Parish Assessor to resolve their appeal. A mutually acceptable, negotiated resolution is the quickest and most effective way to resolve a disputed real estate property tax assessment.
The hearings will be held in the Lac Maurepas Meeting Room, Student Life Center, 916 Navarre Ave., Delgado Community College.
The Board of Review has contracted with Hammerman & Gainer, Inc. to help process the appeals and provide recommendations to the Board of Review, which will be held in open City Council Chambers.
