Caddo Parish Assessor
The Caddo Parish Assessor is responsible for discovery, listing, and valuing all property in Caddo Parish for ad valorem tax purposes. This property includes all Real Estate, all Business Movable Property (Personal Property), and all Oil and Gas Property and Equipment. The Assessor is responsible to the citizens of Caddo Parish for ensuring all property is assessed in a fair and equitable manner to the property owners. At the same time, the Assessor is responsible that the assessments are done according to the Constitution of the State of Louisiana and the Revised Statutes that are passed by the Legislature. The Assessor is responsible for filing the Tax Roll annually with the Louisiana Tax Commission on which all the property taxes are based. The Assessor must also maintain the property maps for each piece of Real Estate, maintain the legal description of each property parcel, as well as maintain the ownership inventory of each parcel.
The Caddo Parish Tax Collector, which is the Caddo 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 November and are due by December 31 of that year.
Each municipality within the parish is responsible for sending tax bills and collecting taxes based on the assessments and the millage rates for that municipality. The city sets these millage rates or tax rates.
The different governing bodies within the parish set millage rates for the parish. These governing bodies include the Caddo Parish School Board, Caddo Parish Commission, Caddo Parish Sheriff, and several others. Also there may be additional millages set for the individual Fire Districts, Water Districts, etc. that depend on where the property is located.
Free Public Search
Caddo Parish’s real estate records are available online and free to the public. We have made some new exciting upgrades to the free public search. Our constituents can now search by owner name, Section-Township-Range, and subdivision. You can also view the property on GIS maps.
Real estate professionals who need value-added options and more powerful database query options will come to rely on the professional search. It has been said it changes the way people do business. And as a parish-sponsored program, we are glad to provide this product.
Subscribers to the “Pro Search” can now search and view real property records with geospatial imaging layers. The map viewer incorporates a point-and-click application blended with parcel boundary layers. This Interactive Mapping tool will let subscribers visualize the property on a map, view the parcel boundary lines and approximate dimensions, and then link the parcel with its real property record card.
Add history cards to your subscription with the History Card Search, which will enable you to search across three different sets of criteria. The results will allow you to look at all the images associated with a subdivision in a single book or you may browse through different pages that are associated with that subdivision. PDF versions of the history cards can be viewed, printed or saved to your hard drive.
