REAL ESTATE TAX ASSESSMENT APPEALS IN MISSOURI

REAL ESTATE TAX ASSESSMENT APPEALS

Every two years in Missouri, (odd years), all real estate is reassessed for purposes of determining a fair market value for real estate taxation purposes.  The Re-Assessment Notice is mailed to the address on file for mailing at the Assessors Office for the County in which the real estate is located.  If you have moved or receive mail at a location different than the property in question, you must contact the Assessors Office in order to ensure they have an up-to-date address for mailing the Assessment Notice.  You are presumed to have received the Assessment Notice and it is not a defense to say that you did not receive it if it is found out that you did not update your mailing information with the Assessor’s Office.

The Appeal deadline in recent years has been extended due to Covid, and the volume of appeals.  However, whatever appeal you intend to file must be filed by the deadline.  If you are unable to file an appeal prior to the expiration of the deadline, you must file a request to file the appeal out of time.  In the initial appeal, it is very dispositive to have performed a commercial or residential appraisal prior to the hearing.

If the outcome of the initial appeal is not satisfactory, you retain the right to appeal the decision to the Board of Equalization.  In the event you disagree with the decision of the Board of Equalization you have the right to Appeal to the State Tax Commission.  You must file an Appeal with the Board of Equalization and have a ruling to be eligible to Appeal to the State Tax Commission.
