NEW ORLEANS, LA—Today, the City encouraged residents to use online payment or to mail in payments when paying their property tax bills.
"Now is the time to utilize the faster and easier methods of payment the City offers," said Chief Financial Officer Norman Foster. "Street closures have already begun around the Central Business District, and the closer we get to the property tax deadline, the harder it will be to get down to City Hall and pay in person."
Citizens may view and pay their property tax bills online by visiting http://www.nola.gov/pay-taxes. To pay online, you will need your tax bill number. Credit or debit card payments are accepted, but a 2.49% processing fee is added. There is no convenience fee to pay using your checking account.
Citizens may also mail their payments to P. O. Box 60047, New Orleans, LA 70160-0047. Using the payment stub provided on the bill will ensure accurate posting. Mailed payments must be postmarked by January 31, 2013 to receive timely credit.
For questions about property tax payments, please call the Bureau of the Treasury at 1-888-387-8027.
