The millage in Plaquemines Parish is 68.65. One mill of property is equal to 1 cent. In Louisiana if you live in your home you can qualify for a $75,000 homestead exemption. A $200,000 home with a $75,000 exemption would result in a $125,000 value. Homes are assessed for tax purposes at 10% of the value. This means you would pay taxes at an appropriate millage rate.
A $200,000 home would result in taxes as follows: Home appraisal of $200,000 - Homestead exemption of $75,000 = $125,000 $125,000 x 10% = $12,500 $12,500 x 1 = 12.5 12.5 x 68.65 (millage rate) = $858 annual tax
