Ascension Parish Assessor fully supports Constitutional Amendment 6

Assessor Mert Smiley

Ascension Parish Assessor M.J. “Mert” Smiley is urging all voters to vote for Constitutional Amendment 6 this November 3, 2020 election.

Amendment 6 will allow more citizens 65 and over and disabled veterans with a disability rating of 50% or greater to qualify for the special assessment level freeze by raising the income limitation to $100,000.  The current level is $77,030.  This means homeowners making $100,000 or less can freeze the assessed value of their primary residence.

Your support for Amendment 6 will make Louisiana a more attractive place for retirees while giving qualifying homeowners a break on property tax increases.  If you have not applied for this important benefit, please contact our office at 225-647-8182 or 225-473-9239, or come by one of our three office locations.
