A message from Whitney S. Miller, Director of Collection, Jackson County, Missouri.

I want to thank you if you have already paid your 2022 property tax bills. If you haven’t, not to worry! You have until 11:40 p.m. CT on December 31, 2022, to pay online through myJacksonCounty.

Whether or not you have already paid your property tax bill for 2022, I wanted to take the opportunity to address a few questions that have arisen this tax season.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is my bill higher than last year when my car stayed the same?

Most used car values increased significantly from 2021 to 2022. By Missouri state statute, the Assessor’s Office bases all vehicle values on the average trade-in value as published by the National Automobile Dealers Association. Depending on the trade-in value of your car, your value may have changed even though your vehicle didn't.
Who can I contact about the wrong vehicle being listed on my tax bill?
The Assessor's Office can help resolve this issue.
