Property taxes rise in Baton Rouge

2 years ago Saturday, December 15, 2012 8:55:41 AM CST December 15, 2012 Saturday, December 15 2012 Dec 15, 2012 in News

BATON ROUGE - Property owners in East Baton Rouge Parish should have noticed an increase in property tax bills delivered earlier this month.

Assessor Brian Wilson tells The Advocate that's because of additional taxes passed this year and increasing property values during a reassessment year.

Property tax bills taxes assessed by dozens of agencies, depending on where the property is. The deadline to pay property taxes is Dec. 31.

This year, two new property taxes went into effect: a 10.6-mill Capital Area Transit System tax passed by voters in Baton Rouge and Baker in April, and the 10-mill property tax to supplement the Chaneyville Fire Protection District, which was approved in November 2011.
