TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! JACKSON COUNTY LEGISLATURE UNITED IN STRIPPING SOLE PROPERTY TAX DUTIES FROM ASSESSOR!!!



Another vital function of Jackson County government threatens to be taken away from Exec Frank White.

To wit . . .

A MAJORITY OF JACKSON COUNTY LEGISLATORS WANT THE MISSOURI STATE TAX COMMISSION TO INTERCEDE AMID THE CURRENT PROPERTY TAX ASSESSMENT CRISIS!!!

A letter without any context was posted to one of our favorite community news websites but hasn't yet earned much notice despite its significance.

Right now it's important to highlight the money line from the leader of the Legislature . . .



"It is concerning to me the law may not have been followed, and as a result, the burden to ensure that valuation increases have been done correctly has shifted to the property owners.

"Finally, as you know, the State Tax Commission “shall exercise general supervision over all the assessing officers of this state, over county board of equalization and appeal in performance of their duties” under Missouri law, §138.430, RSMo. I’m requesting that you fulfill your legal mandate by exercising your statutory authority and take all necessary action to assist in fixing this problem, including but not limited to , remedying the Assessor’s lack of physical inspections for those properties whose valuations increased more than 15%. I thank you in advance for your assistance with this matter and welcome the opportunity to discuss this with you further."

Theresa Galvin
Jackson County Legislature, Chairman

Background . . .



Jackson County had to strip COMBAT away from Exec Frank White and now they're using the same tactic with the assessor's office.

The danger is that property tax assessment is basically the only function of County government and if they can't do this job . . . There really isn't much justification for keeping the government structure intact . . . More likely . . .

THE MISSOURI STATE TAX COMMISSION TAKING OVER PROPERTY TAX ASSESSMENTS WOULD MAKE EXECUTIVE FRANK WHITE NOTHING MORE THAN A LAME DUCK!!!

Again, this move has a majority on the Legislature and so these politicos are pleading with the State for rescue from a politico who has, reportedly, created a metro wide crisis.

Developing . . .

It's past time for Frank White to be removed from office. This is ridiculous to just take one office away from him at a time.

^^^ And hopefully Galvin and her crew as well - they can make money vanish better than Harry Anderson could.

This is insane. County government is basically asking for a state takeover. Frank could not have done a worse job.

Frank apparently cannot think for himself and has chosen advisors who are just as clueless, but have delusions of grandeur. The tragedy is that people will lose their homes and the absolute stupidity of how this has been handled has cost the county any credibility it had left. The fallout will last years. The cartoon PR video they put out is beyond embarrassing.

Assessor Beatty is just another hack who drifts from one taxpayer-paid job to the next.
The legislature, KCMO city hall, and Jackson County Courthouse are full of them.
Elected; employee; "consultant"; round and round.
If looking out for yourself and your friends is the top priority, why should anyone be surprised at the incompetence and terrible results for the public?
It never changes.

The Legislature should have been on top of this all along. There should have been progress reports at every session, with a clear understanding of methods and goals. They're casting about for somebody else to blame, but in large part the debacle is on them.

And btw look into stripping her of her appraisers license. I think this fiasco adequately demonstrates incompetence. She shouldnt be appraising property in public or private. She is politically connected... so jackass will hire to do something but it shouldn't be in real estate.

Gail Beatty also involved in devaluing property located from 26th to 27th Streets from Prospect to Brooklyn in City's East Patrol project in concert with Beverly Easterwood. She really needs to be arrested for fraud, corruption, collusion and bad faith.
