TKC SUNDAY SPECIAL!!! JACKSON COUNTY INSIDER: EXPECT VEHICLE PROPERTY TAX SPIKE AMID COURTHOUSE ASSESSMENT DEPARTMENT STAFFING CRISIS!!!



Everyday residents are mostly removed from the constant political intrigue and fighting betwixt the Legislature and the County Exec as of late.

For most voters, the slapfight has been a sideshow and something that they don't really understand.

The crisis at the jail threatens local finances but the story of rampant human rights abuses and horrific accusations of brutality, sadly, don't resonate among the every day lives of voters.

However, thanks to KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS we're getting FIRST WORD on a crisis that's low-key but far more insidious and presents a clear & present danger to Jackson County wallets.

Checkit . . .

A COURTHOUSE INSIDER WARNS VOTERS OF DRAMATICALLY RISING PERSONAL PROPERTY TAXES FOR VEHICLES THANKS TO A JACKSON COUNTY CASH CRUNCH AND STAFFING CRISIS!!!

Long-term Jackson County employees have been shifted around because of changing political alliances and staffers with expertise in vehicle taxation appraisals and accounting are being moved behind the scenes . . .

Another shocker, so many JaxCo residents with old school cars are going feel this high tax bite FIRST . . .

"Jackson County will limit reductions for vehicles with high miles, salvage titles, etc like they have in many years past."

The motive for this JACKSON COUNTY VEHICLE PROPERTY TAX INCREASE ON THE SNEAK is the growing need for cash amid ongoing legal trouble at the jail which only stands to grow worse along with emergency renovations to avoid further litigation.

Moreover, these complaints among rank & file workers have resonated with the Legislature and seem to be powering their full-scale war with County Exec Frank White that continues to worsen . . .

Property taxes are out of control in Jackson County. What's worse is that we're not getting a lot in return for our money.

This is actually a lot worse than you think Tk.

The assessments will also impact homeowners, they already have. Late billing and inaccurate bills aren't going to have very many staffers to address problems that always come up. After years and years of cuts, there just aren't enough people qualified to do the job. Meanwhile Frank's office expenses are some of the biggest we've seen we're awarding jobs based on connections not qualifications.

Time to dissolve the County. Let the State of Missouri use a state run department to collect the fees. There would probably be a decrease in costs for everyone and a lot less fighting. Think about it.

And.... The Citizens of KCMO pay for on duty KCMO Police Officers to handle traffic control for the sports stadium. Both Royals and Chiefs, one of the only police departments in the nation that do this for free. The ball clubs pay nothing for this service that takes officers out of the field. That’s about 25 officers for a Chiefs game and 10 for a Royals game, you do the math.

I think I see the reason Mike Sanders departed..was awfully strange leaving your position so soon after the people elected you to it and to completely get out of politics. No this is not Frank White's fault. Frank's fault was not being smart enough to see he was being set up. Someone needs to try to get the Department of Justice involved in this investigation into the city and county

I’ve been telling people for weeks since the assessments starting showing up online, I’ve seen some significant rises in taxes. I’m regularly on their website for work and I’ve seen property taxes jump almost fifty percent. I generally don’t look at vehicle taxes but there are increases for sure

So the number of cars on the roads in JAXCO with expired temporary tags will increase. That's why my "Uninsured motorist" insurance went up this year to protect me from the douche bags that never pay their taxes and insurance now.
If we take the cops off parking duty for the CHIEFS maybe they could just roam Arrowhead parking and ticket the expired tags. Afterall paying $60 to park means you have the money to pay the ticket.

While handing out money to boons and cronies Jackson county has no problem grabbing up to 15 - 20 percent of retired seniors annual income for their fucking money wasting, do nothing bureaucracy. Gotta keep the pet projects, overpaid bureaucrats and sports complex projects top of their crooked ass lists. If the folks footing the bills don't like it they can get the fuck out or just go homeless. What a bunch of low life cock suckers running Jackson county.

FACT

This is exactly How Communist / Marxist Democratic Liberals run things, straight into the Ground !

Its already been proven before you CAN NOT tax yourself out of problems you've created because of pure ignorance & stupidity poor management !

Detroit tried that shit and failed !

New York tried that shit years ago, before Rudy took over

Washington DC tried that shit when Cocaine Mayor Marion Barry was mayor and it failed miserably !!

But these Degenerate Communist / Marxist scumbag Democratic Liberals are so fuckin' stupid & ignorant its pathetic, all they know how to do is LIE, STEAL, Scheme, Scam and lie some more and steal more money !

The citizens in KCMO, INDEP, Jackson County need to say NO and go after those County Legislators full bore !!!!

The safety valve is that people can move to Kansas. Taxes are not lower there, but Kansans at least get their money's worth. It is interesting to note that another article on TKC a few days ago states that KC is the only big city where it is cheaper to live in the suburbs. How ironic!

4:47, Property taxes on vehicles are half, HALF of what we pay in Jackson fucking county.

TAlk with your accountant or tax advisor.
Incorporate to either pay lower taxes or incorporate in another county or state. You will find huge tax savings that big and small corporations received by going to Delaware- but anywhere other than Jackson Co.
Don’t believe? Lone Jack has both Jackson County and Johnson County in I‎t- that tax rate is so much smaller in Johnson County Missouri that you can truly see how different the people live near the divide.
As Leona Hensley said- “ Only the little people pay taxes”.
Be big and move away from Jackson County.
