- Board of Equalization: (The deadline for filing a 2019 BOE Appeal is Monday, July 8, 2019.) You have the right to appeal the estimated 2019 market value placed on your property to the Jackson County Board of Equalization (BOE). Appeals to the BOE must be filed on or before Monday, July 8, 2019. This date is set by Missouri state law; Jackson County has no authority to extend it. Along with your appeal form, you should provide documentation to support your opinion of value. The Board will notify you of the date, time and location of your scheduled hearing. The Board will hear evidence from the Assessment Department staff and from you regarding the value of the property. They will then render a decision based upon the evidence presented. If you do not appear at your scheduled hearing, the Board may hear your case and value your property based upon the evidence presented.
You can contact the BOE staff at email@example.com or by calling 816-881-3309.
- State Tax Commission (STC): If you disagree with the decision of the Board of Equalization, you have the right to appeal to the State Tax Commission. Appeals to the STC must be filed within 30 days of the Board of Equalization's decision or by September 30, 2019, whichever is later. For more information about filing an STC appeal see
