Jackson County, Missouri
Working Together to Establish Fair
and Equitable Taxation
Check back often for the latest news related to this reassessment project.
The mission of the Jackson County Assessment Department is to achieve accurate and equitable property values throughout the county. The county has experienced a strong real estate market resulting in significant value increases over the last two assessment cycles from 2017-2021.
As we prepare for 2021, the county has opted for a very conservative valuation despite data from multiple housing sources that indicated an increase in property value. COVID-19 has played a major role in our conservative valuation. If the market indicates a residential property’s value, other than new construction and improvements, should increase by more than 15%, interior inspections are required to be offered to the property owner.
Property owners will be receiving tentative assessment disclosure notices in April 2021. Read the disclosure carefully. It will include instructions if you wish to have your property’s valuation reviewed.
Jackson County has contracted with Tyler Technologies to conduct an exterior parcel-by-parcel review to update property assessments for 2023, providing an efficient technical process with current, accurate property values. This process is underway and will continue through 2022. For more information, please download our frequently asked questions document and check back for updates as the project progresses.
