The Finance Department does the financial reporting for the City. Our fiscal year runs from July 1st through June 30th. The City's finance reports are printed after the annual audit is completed each December.
The bills the City of Kenner incurs are processed for payment by Accounts Payable. We do one check cut per week with checks being issued on Fridays. Departments can submit invoices for payment until 4 pm on Monday's. Any invoice received after 4 pm on Monday will be processed for payment the following week. Any vendor seeking information on payments should first refer to the Department that engaged them in service.
The payroll section processes payroll for approximately 680 employees who are paid by direct deposit on a biweekly basis. Payroll advices are either emailed or distributed directly to employees. If you have left the City and you need a W2 or a 1099 form, you need to put it in writing to the Director of the Department you worked in.
Property Taxes (City of Kenner Only)
The residents of Kenner are most familiar with this section of the Finance Department. Each year in late November or early December tax bills are issued for property located within the corporate city limits. The Jefferson Parish Assessor's Office provides the property information to the City. Tax bills are mailed to the property owner only. After receiving the information from the Assessor, the property tax bills are sent out and due by December 31st. Anyone with a name or mailing address change should contact the Assessor's Office at 736-6370. Homestead exemptions are only granted through the Assessor's Office. Delinquent taxes will be sold at tax sales. Redemption is through this office for three years from the date of sale. Delinquent tax bills purchased by an individual cannot be redeemed through the city after 3 years from date of sale, they must be redeemed from the individual. Tax researches are $20 per parcel payable in advance, and must include a legal description. Normally you will receive the research in three to five days.

Did you know that if you have a contract for dumpster service and you are paying a solid waste collection fee on your Jefferson Parish water bills but not using garbage service, it is possible to have the garbage charge eliminated from your Jefferson Parish water bill. How? Contact the City of Kenner Finance Department and provide us with a copy of the viable contract for dumpster service and your last water bill showing the charges for garbage. The City will then process your request for exemption from solid waste collection fees. If you do not have a viable contract for dumpster service and simply choose not to use garbage collection, you must still pay the solid waste collection fee.
