The Ascension Parish Assessor’s Office announces the availability of a new online homestead exemption application available on its website (www.ascensionassessor.com). You will find a new tab on the home page named Homestead App. By clicking this tab it will redirect you to the new application. In 2013, Assessor Mert Smiley was the first in the State of Louisiana to provide this convenient technology and to continue the effort of having the most modern Assessor’s office in Louisiana this user-friendly upgrade also collects the LAT1 building data, thereby, saving the office from having to mail a separate form and waiting on a reply by mail. When a new homeowner uses the form online (or in the future walks into the office after the Coronavirus is over), it integrates into the Assessor’s paperless workflow system for review and approval, which makes the entire process completely electronic. For your next closing on a home in Ascension Parish, please apply for your homestead exemption online or direct your clients to apply for their homestead exemption online. If you or your clients have any questions, please call the office at 225-647-8182.
Stay safe and healthy! Everyone is in our prayers.
With my best regards,
Chief Deputy Assessor
