Jackson County Executive responds to assessment proposal

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Jackson County Executive Frank White, Jr. has issued the following response to an assessment proposal introduced by a member of the Board of Equalization (BOE) at today’s meeting:

“The County remains committed to ensuring that the assessment process is both fair and accurate. The proposal discussed at today's Board of Equalization's (BOE) meeting proposes to set arbitrary caps on valuation increases, regardless of the property's true value. However, state law requires the BOE, like the County Assessor, ensure properties are assessed at their true value.”

Due to statements regarding the support of the State Tax Commission (STC), the County requested the STC's assistance in clarifying its position on this matter. Maureen Monaghan, general counsel for the STC, provided information and authorized the County to release the information to the media. Her email is attached.STC email
