The Real Estate Department collects taxes for each of the approximately 220,000 parcels of property within city limits. Property valuation or assessment is conducted by the Assessor's Office every other year (odd numbered).

Each November, the Collector of Revenue Office sends a tax notice to all landowners. Taxes are due by December 31st of each year.



If you have an escrow account set up with your mortgage company, your bill will be sent to your lending agency to be paid through your escrow account.

Real estate tax bills for non-escrowed accounts will be mailed in November.

There is a 2.45% transaction fee for all credit and debit card payments and a $1.25 fee for ACH transactions.

Missouri State Statutes mandate the assessment of a late 2% penalty and a 2% interest for taxes that remain unpaid after December 31st. Delinquent payments are subject to a one time penalty of 2% and interest at 2% per month, up to a maximum of 18% per year. Interest will continue to be assessed until the tax amount has been paid in full.
