YES ON CA-2

Vote Yes on CA-2 to bring fairness and predictability to Louisiana.

  • Constitutional Amendment Two is on the ballot for voters to decide this fall. A “yes” vote brings fairness and predictability to oil and gas assessments.
  • There are three ways to assess property values, but Louisiana Assessors have access legally to only two when it comes to oil and gas wells. The income approach is not available to them because it is not included in the Constitution, where this part of law resides.
  • The income approach, simply put, is the method used to value assets based on their ability to produce revenue. When oil and gas wells are bought and sold in the market, the income approach is how they are valued.  It makes good common sense for that to be an available method for estimating their value for tax purposes as well.
