The City of New Orleans has extended the deadline for paying 2014 property taxes to Friday, Feb. 7 due to the closure of City Hall as a result of the winter storm that shut down much of the region this week.
Property owners can make payments in several ways, including in-person, by mail and online:
Bureau of the Treasury City Hall, Room 1W40
The City will provide a drop-off lane at the Perdido St. entrance to City Hall on Friday, Jan. 31 and Friday, Feb. 7.
The City of New Orleans and the metro region have begun to emerge from the winter storm that forced a near-complete shutdown of everything from airports to roads to restaurants, according to a city press conference held Wednesday morning.
Officials say we’re not out of the woods just yet, as dangerous winter weather continues to grip the region and already-freezing or near-freezing temperatures are expected to plunge again this evening.
The GOES-East satellite (a joint project of NASA and NOAA) captured this photo of the winter storm that hammered the South yesterday.
The National Weather Service has canceled the Winter Storm Warning for the New Orleans region as the storm moves offshore, but a Hard Freeze Warning is in effect. Temperatures are forecasted to warm into the mid- to upper-30s today, with hints of sunshine, but will quickly plummet after nightfall.
