Resident: La. needs ‘Save Our Homes’
The “Save Our Homes” law is a Florida Constitutional amendment. This law basically limits the annual increase in assessed value of property receiving homestead exemptions to 3 percent or the percentage change in the consumer price index, whichever is lower.
In my studies of the Lincoln Parish Assessor and the online tax roll, I have come to the conclusion that this “Save Our Homes” law is very desirable for all homeowners in Louisiana. This law would protect homeowners with homestead exemptions from the “over-the-top” assessment values placed on us by the unscrupulous property assessors.
