If you are not satisfied with the estimated 2015 market value placed on your property or you feel your reassessment notice is incorrect, you may request an Informal Review with the Assessment Department by calling (816) 881-4601 during regular business hours (8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Monday – Friday, excluding holidays observed by Jackson County) or by requesting an Informal Review online at jacksongov.org/review on or before June 12, 2015.
The Assessment Department is primarily responsible for the valuation of ALL real and personal property in Jackson County.
Within the County, there are approximately 296,000 real property accounts, 310,000 individual personal property accounts and 28,000 business personal property accounts. All personal property accounts are revalued annually through declaration forms, reviews and audits. Real property is revalued every odd-numbered year -- 2009, 2011, 2013, etc. -- with the exception of the annual review of building permits, splits/combines, new plats and taxpayer review requests.
The result of this process is to set the assessed valuation of property in Jackson County. Such assessed valuation and levies set by Jackson County and other tax authorities, like cities and school districts, are used to calculate the property taxes that fund those taxing authorities.
