Authored by Rep. Jared Brossett and recently signed into law by the Governor,
Act 58 requires the Orleans Parish Assessor to provide property owners
a form for permanent registration of the Homestead Exemption. Previously,
homeowners would have to renew their Homestead Exemptions annually via
a return-mail form from the Assessor. It is estimated moving to the permanent
Homestead Exemption registration will save more than $60,000 annually. We
supported this reform and thank the Legislature for this assistance.
