East Baton Rouge school system seeks tax renewals on Oct. 24
BATON ROUGE- Voters throughout East Baton Rouge Parish will be asked on Saturday to renew for 10 more years three separate property taxes dedicated to education.
These taxes were last renewed on April 29, 2006, by margins of 62-to-38 percent.

The three property taxes amount to a total annual tax bill of $58.12 for a home assessed at $150,000, and $135.62 for a home assessed at $250,000. They are subject to Louisiana's homestead exemption, so the first $75,000 in value on the home is not taxed.
