Jackson County Offers Virtual Property Tax Appeal Extension Amid FAIL

The most important thing locals need to know this evening . . . Local government struggles to cope with a process confronting widespread complaints.

Here are the basics . . .

While the news is good for hundreds of property owners who still want to file appeals, they will need to do it through a virtual meeting.

The Jackson County Assessor’s office announced Friday afternoon property owners would no longer be able to walk in to its office in Downtown Kansas City to file an appeal. Instead, anyone using that location will need to schedule a virtual appointment with the assessment department by calling (877) 895-9675.

A trusted COURTHOUSE INSIDER tells us . . . 

"The Assessment Dept is in complete disarray today and yesterday. Website down so no appeal reviews can be booked. No one answering the phone. People waiting 7 hours beyond their scheduled appointment.

"This is a mess and finally the BOE is recognizing this . . .There are a lot of people having BOE hearings scheduled before they are scheduled to meet with the Assessment Dept informal reviews. They didn’t coordinate at all on this . . ."
