Property Taxes Due by December 31st
Tens of thousands of tax bills will be mailed to property owners in the City of St. Louis in early November. The deadline for paying your real estate and personal property tax bills is December 31st. As city employees, we are obligated to pay our taxes in full and on time.
Department of Personnel Administrative Regulation No. 137 states that "City employees, because of the public nature of their employment are held to high standards of compliance with these tax laws by the general public. These standards of compliance are perfectly proper and shall be the standards against which City employees are measured. Employees who don't pay [by Dec. 31st] are subject to disciplinary action."
We have made more payment options available to continually improve customer service. We hope you will take advantage of them and pay your tax bills by December 31st.
Beginning Monday, November 9th and ending December 31st, my office will staff four satellite bank locations where you may pay your bill. Only payments for the current tax year can be accepted at these locations. Please check the back of the statement for addresses and hours of operations. Credit and debit cards cannot be accepted at the banks, but are accepted at www.StLouisCollector.com, via our telephone hotline 1-800-2PAYTAX, and in Room 109. There is a nominal convenience fee for using a debit or credit card.
If you are looking for a way to budget for these annual taxes, you should inquire about our "Pre-Pay" program. This initiative allows individuals to make deposits towards future tax liabilities throughout the year in an effort to make the process as convenient as possible. More information can be found by calling (314) 622-4783.
Taxpayers will now be able to print their previous and current year personal property tax paid receipts online. We hope this new convenience will help taxpayers to maintain their records. Please visit www.StLouisCollector.com.
My staff in the office and at the neighborhood banks is thoroughly prepared for a robust property tax season. We look forward to serving you and all the taxpayers of the City of St. Louis!Gregory F. X. Daly
