Welcome to the Ouachita Parish Assessor Website! I hope you find it a useful resource for practical information about property values and the assessment process.
Your Assessor’s office is charged with the responsibility to identify and value all property within the Parish of Ouachita. Fair taxation has always been and always will continue to be vitally important to every taxpayer in the Parish. Correct property assessment provides our local governments, law enforcement, schools and others with the funds they need to maintain, improve and repair our infrastructure, protect us from crime and educate our children.
As your Ouachita Parish Assessor, my staff and I will continue to be an office that makes a difference. Our mission is to be the best public servants, giving our best efforts, for the very best community – always striving to be better.
This is your office and we are here to serve you!
