October 7 Deadline for Ida Damage Assessments in New Orleans is Approaching

All property owners who sustained damages strongly encouraged to submit information at

NEW ORLEANS — Orleans Parish Assessor Erroll Williams is reminding property owners that this Thursday, October 7, 2021, is the deadline to submit documentation to receive a reduction in your property assessment due to damages caused by Hurricane Ida.

The deadline to file for a Hurricane Ida Damage Assessment is 4 p.m., Thursday, October 7th, 2021.

“This is an easy process,” said Assessor Williams. “Property owners fill out the Hurricane Ida Damage Form on our website and submit the completed form with any kind of supporting documentation. We understand most people will probably only have pictures of their damage and that’s fine, but please don’t wait to the last minute. To ensure you get the reduction you deserve, please submit documentation as soon as possible.”

All residential property owners have automatically received a five percent reduction due to properties being non-operational for weeks following the storm’s landfall. This reduction has already been applied to property assessments and no action is necessary to receive this adjustment.

Those with additional physical damages, as well as commercial properties, are encouraged to submit documentation of Hurricane Ida damages.

Submissions must include documentation to support a damage claim, such as photographs, contractor estimates of repair, inspection report, damage appraisal, adjuster’s estimates, or a copy of an insurance claim.

Once the form is complete you must do one of the following:
