Louisiana Amendment 3 (2023), Property Tax Exemptions for First Responders

Our office is monitoring the first responder exemption. The exemption would provide an additional property exemption of $2,500 for first responders including fire fighters, emergency medical service personnel, emergency response dispatchers, peace officers, police officers and sheriffs.

The exemption must be approved by each local parish government before it is enacted. The Livingston Parish Government is researching the exemption and the effects on the overall parish budget. They will be giving an answer soon.

Are You a Disabled Veteran?

Effective January 1, 2023, voters approved a Constitutional Amendment, which replaced and expanded the veteran property tax exemption into 3 categories.

  • 50-69% Disabled Veteran:

    Homestead Exemption ($75,000) + an additional $25,000 exemption= $PG电子试玩网站,000 total value exemption

  • 70-99% Disabled Veteran:

    Homestead Exemption ($75,000) + an additional $45,000 exemption= $120,000 total value exemption

  • PG电子试玩网站% Disabled Veteran:

    Homestead Exemption ($75,000) + remaining assessed value veteran exemption= total value exemption

To ensure you receive the correct veteran exemption, please contact your local Louisiana Department of Veterans Affairs to get an updated Form A25 with your current home address and provide it to our office.

Are you age 65 or permanently disabled?

If you are age 65 or older or have a permanent disability you might be qualified to have your assessed value frozen.

  • You must be age 65 or older.


  • You must be permanently totally disabled as determined by court judgement or as certified by a state or federal agency.

If you meet either of these requirements and have a combined gross household income of $PG电子试玩网站k or less, you qualify.

This will freeze the assessed value of your property and exclude you from any reassessments, unless disqualification occurs. The freeze does not exempt your property from the increasing or decreasing of millage rates. Millage rates vary from year to year , therefore, the amount due annually could possibly fluctuate.

Please contact our office so we can assist you.
