Board of Equalization Status Update

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Today, the Jackson County Assessment Department was notified that the Board of Equalization (BOE) will begin conducting BOE appeal hearings before hearing officers by phone rather than in person, effective immediately. The BOE’s decision is due to concerns of large gatherings related to COVID-19, also known as novel coronavirus.

BOE staff will be notifying those with pending BOE appeals about the change.

If they do it right, this will probably help a lot of older residents argue their assessments. There are always a lot of people who have problems getting downtown.

Jackson County should be preparing to lower assessments. What goes up also goes down including property values.
