Assessor Mert Smiley: Thank You Ascension Parish

Assessor Mert Smiley

I would like to thank the citizens of Ascension Parish for the honor and privilege of serving as your Assessor for another term.

With the help of the highly trained and certified staff of your Assessor’s Office, we are now one of the premier Assessors Office in the state and nation.

Being your Assessor is an honor that I don’t take lightly.  Your Assessor’s Office is operated in a professional, transparent, and ethical manner and taxpayers are treated fair and equitable.

I look forward to serving another term, keeping with my open door policy and always searching for new technology and ideas to keep your Assessor’s Office at the very top of the assessment industry.
