Livingston Parish assessor

Livingston Parish Assessor Jeff Taylor said he seeks re-election to continue representing parish voters “with honesty and integrity and to continue improving the parish’s assessment process.”

Taylor said he is the only Louisiana assessor to be twice nominated for the International Association of Assessing Officers Distinguished Assessment Jurisdiction Award, which is presented to agency leaders.

“I am proud of the work we’re doing to improve the fairness and accuracy of the assessments in Livingston Parish,” said Taylor, a 50-year-old Republican.

He said his office is utilizing some of the latest technology and “a steadfast commitment to getting it right, to make our office a source of pride for the people of Livingston Parish.”

Taylor recently unveiled the parish’s new mapping system, which allows the Assessor’s Office to instantly and accurately identify parcels of property throughout the parish through a variety of search options, he said.

Taylor said he has been a strong advocate for lowering millages and reducing property taxes.

Taylor is the founding sponsor of Assess the Need, a school supply program that provides supplies to parish children.

He is married to Delia Adams Taylor of Livingston. They have two children: Zachary, an LSU student, and Caroline, a junior at Denham Springs High School. His parents are the Rev. Delmas and Sharon Taylor.

Taylor graduated from Southeastern Louisiana University with a bachelor’s degree in marketing and management, and Doyle High School. He and his family attend First Baptist Church of Denham Springs.
