The Livingston Parish Assessor’s Office is attempting to work with businesses in Livingston Parish that have been hurt by COVID-19. This has been a tough year for everyone and businesses have been impacted inordinately, so our office is doing what is within our power to provide relief.
Livingston Parish Assessor, Jeff Taylor and his office staff wore shirts to honor the life of Denham Springs High School student Remy Hidalgo. This young man, a player for the DSHS Football program, passed away after collapsing at practice. The shirts were worn as part of a fundraiser for the Hidalgo family. We wanted to not only show our support for the family, but also raise money to help them in this horrible time.
The Livingston Parish Assessor’s Office is proud to be able to announce that we have launched the online homestead exemption form. In the midst of COVID, it was important for us to be able to extend contactless technology to the people of Livingston Parish.
COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on households all over the country, but few places have been hit harder than Louisiana. It’s also a reassessment year, which presents a unique challenge to our office. That’s why our office has been working hard to rise to the challenge. Jeff Taylor, the Assessor of Livingston Parish, was recently on a podcast to discuss this unique challenge and what we’ve done to grapple with it.
