Anyone worried about getting their New Orleans property taxes paid on time can breathe a little easier. City Hall has extended the payment deadline until Monday.
The deadline is normally Jan. 31. Because that is Sunday, officials moved it to Feb. 1.
The city’s Bureau of the Treasury will remain open for an additional hour Monday, accepting in-person payments from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Normal collection times are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Residents also may leave their payments at a drop-off lane at City Hall’s Perdido Street entrance from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday.
For those who choose to pay online or by mail, payments must be submitted or postmarked on or before Feb. 1 to receive timely credit. Residents paying by mail must send a check and a payment stub from their property tax bill to P.O. Box 60047, New Orleans, LA 70160.
The city asks residents to write their tax bill number and property address on the face of checks.
Residents paying online may pay by electronic check or credit or debit cards, though they will be charged an extra 2.49 percent processing fee when using a card. They must visit www.nola.gov/pay-taxes, and they need their tax bill number to pay.
Anyone with questions about property tax payments may call the Bureau of the Treasury at (888) 387-8027.
