TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! COURTHOUSE INSIDER: JACKSON COUNTY 'COULDN'T POSSIBLY' REVIEW FRACTION OF PROPERTY TAX APPEALS BEFORE 2019 DEADLINE!!!



Today begins documents proof that Kansas City local government is among the most dysfunctional in all of the nation.

Check the bill so far . . .

KCTV5: Jackson County expecting up to 40,000 property assessment appeals by today's extended deadline

Deets on the big day for the BOE:

Tuesday is the last day Jackson County homeowners and property owners can turn in a formal appeal to the county's Board of Equalization, the next step in the controversial saga that has seen thousands of local properties assessed at what owners say is an incredibly unreasonable rate . . . The county expects to receive 30-to-40,000 formal appeals by the time the deadline hits.

According, a brief Midday run-in inspired this quick quip and message to TKC . . .

"Even working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from now until October, we couldn't possibly review 30 to 40K property tax assessment appeals. It's a bad joke, this process is never going to work and sooner or later somebody is going to have to be the grown up and stop pushing this charade on the pubic. Nobody trusts Frank anymore and Legislature is just waiting to see what happens with his legal troubles. This is a disaster in the making and I feel sorry for the county residents who have been dragged into this debacle for fear of losing their homes."

Hey now, let's not forget that county residents can also appeal to the Missouri State Tax Commission as well. Home owners should not give up their rights.

Greeeat. That's just want KC needs, more paper work and more people rushing to local government buildings begging to save their homes. This is maybe the best sign that KC is a failed city and I'm really disappointed that the new mayor hasn't made a peep about this even thought he ran on affordable housing for this community.

Frank will never get another vote West of Troost again.

I knew when they set a new date for Sept 3 that they would not be able to review all of the appeals in time, that's just common sense. Unless there was an appraisal in the home owners favor those appeals will be rubber stamped denied!

Don't worry the formerly homeless Q is going to get on it after he recuperates from the gay world series rally at Power and Light last night. And after the regularly scheduled photos ops.

His speech will be... "The city has nothing to do with it even though the planning and permits department has been rubber stamping permits, tweaking zoning rules in secret to get around established law, and even handing out 25 year tax abatement deals to builders and speculators for eight years. Nothing at all to do with it. Now let's play some gay baseball!"

The county should give everyone who filed an appeal the opportunity to settle for some modest increase over 2018. The vast majority would settle on the spot and those who chose to fight probably have special circumstances which could be examined carefully. Then start the process over again for 2020 now and especially review any appraisals that increased dramatically. If it is determined that some of the properties substantially increased in value then so be it but at least we would have confidence in the appraisals. Then it might be up to the legislature to come up with some maximum amount that an assessment can rise in one year.

Preston Smith was correct. They don't know what the hell they are doing. It's that simple.

^^^ Well they didn't waste any time giving themselves fat raises when that emergency $500K cash rolled into their department 4:03.

Why? Because one or two huge McMansions built on a block full of humble bungalows make it now worth a 700% assessment increase in value overnight?

^^^ Which one. The 25 year tax abated one or the one they assessed at $29.99?

My bet is if you didn’t appeal they’re going after you and will deal with the ones who appealed next year, doesn’t matter if the process was terribly flawed to begin with, Frankie boy is taking extra money this year one way or another, just wait, you’ll see. He is that stupid.

This is exactly what the immigrant caravans we’re trying to achieve at our southern border; to overwhelm the existing system to such and extent that we all just say fuck it and give them what they want.
