The Ascension Parish Assessor is responsible for discovery, listing, and valuing all property in Ascension Parish for ad valorem tax
purposes. This property includes all Real Estate, all Business Movable Property (Personal Property), and all Oil & Gas Property and
Equipment. The Assessor is responsible to the citizens of Ascension Parish to ensure all property is assessed in a fair and equitable
manner. At the same time, the Assessor is responsible for ensuring that the assessments are calculated according to the Constitution of the
State of Louisiana and the Revised Statutes that are passed by the Legislature. The Assessor is also responsible for filing the annual Tax
Roll with the Louisiana Tax Commission. In addition, the Assessor must maintain the legal description of each property parcel, as well as
maintain the ownership inventory of each parcel.
The Ascension Parish Tax Collector, which is the Ascension Parish Sheriff, is responsible for sending tax bills and collecting
taxes based on the assessments and the millage rates. The annual parish tax bills are sent out in the latter part of the year and are due
by December 31 of that year.
The different governing bodies within the parish set millage rates for the parish. These governing bodies include the
Ascension Parish School Board, Ascension Parish Council, Ascension Parish Sheriff, and others.
Also there may be additional millages set for the individual Fire Districts, Water Districts, etc.
These millages depend upon the location of the property.
