The City of New Orleans 2024 property tax bills will be delayed this year by as much as one month. The delay has been caused by the Orleans Parish School Board’s (OPSB) failure to hold a key vote in determining their 2024 millage rate. The Board of Review certified the assessment rolls in October, and the city council completed the budget process earlier this month; however, the OPSB’s inaction will delay the bills. The OPSB is autonomous from the city in their budget process and tax rate determination, and their rate is nearly one-third of the total levied on New Orleans tax bills (last year, it was 45.31 mills of 146.81 mills levied citywide).
The OPSB is scheduled to hold the necessary public meeting and tax rate determination in late January. This delay means the 2024 property tax due date will be pushed back, allowing taxpayers an extra month to pay, and tax bills will likely have a delinquency date of March 1, 2024.
The local digital media reported on the development in an article, which you can read here.
