NOVEMBER 8 ELECTION INFORMATION: CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT #6   One of the items on the November 8, 2022, ballot will have a major impact on Orleans property owners in the coming years. Constitutional Amendment No. 6 will put a 10 percent annual cap on assessment increases for Homestead Exempt properties in Orleans Parish. If it passes, CA No. 6 will protect Orleans Parish homeowners from large property tax increases due to rapid price spikes in the real estate market. For example, if the home you bought for $200,000 is reappraised to be worth $400,000, instead of your taxable assessment doubling (20,000 to 40,000), the increase would be capped at 10 percent per year (20,000 to 22,000).   This measure will provide some New Orleans homeowners protection from being priced out of their homes because of assessment increases due to changes in the real estate market.   Even though CA No.6 is specific to Orleans Parish, as a constitutional amendment it requires a statewide vote. It is critically important for New Orleanians to vote on this matter for the November 8, 2022 election. Early voting Tuesday, October 25, 2022, through Tuesday, November 1, 2022 (except Sunday), from 8:30 a.m.- 6 p.m. Election Day is Tuesday, November 8, 2022.
