Frequently Asked Questions


Q: What is the Homestead Exemption and how do I apply for it?

A: The homestead exemption is a tax exemption on the first $75,000 of the value of a person’s home. This exemption applies to all homeowners. The value of your home is exempt up to $75,000 from state and parish property taxes.  After your closing, your closing agent will file your act of sale in the Conveyance Office of the Parish Clerk of Court. A short time later you will receive a recorded copy of your title along with the recordation numbers, the Conveyance Office Book and Page number (known as the C.O.B. and Folio) and the instrument number. After you receive the recorded copy of your sale, bring it and the C.O.B. and Folio number to the Parish Assessors Office and file for your homestead exemption. You must own and occupy the property to qualify for the homestead exemption. After you obtain the Homestead Exemption, each year thereafter you will receive a renewal card in the mail.
