Some cities in Jackson County submit special city assessments to Jackson County to be added to your real estate tax bills. These city special assessments may arise from a variety of reasons such as the clearing of overgrown or noxious weeds, the demolition of a dangerous building, the maintenance of sidewalks or sewers, etc.
The special assessment charge on your tax bill is due as all other taxes on your real estate bill by December 31. The bill will be considered delinquent if paid after December 31. All applicable interest and penalties will apply to delinquent payments.
Jackson County does not determine the validity of the of a city’s special assessment claim. If you disagree with a city’s special assessment charge, please contact the city assessing said charge.
