Louisiana 2022 amendments guide: Amendment #5

Election Day this year is Tues. Nov 8. from 7 am to 8 pm

The Louisiana Secretary of State website has a tool where voters can search for ballot information related to their own individual parish and precinct.

“Do you support an amendment to allow the levying of a lower millage rate by a local taxing authority while maintaining the authority’s ability to adjust to the current authorized millage rate?”

A yes vote on this amendment would allow a two-thirds vote by the taxing authority to increase property taxes, also known as ad valorem taxes.

A no vote would retain the current law, would not give the taxing authority this ability and instead leaves property taxes up to parishes, who set up millage rates based on 10% of the fair market value.
