Assessment Notices

2023 Residential Value and Interior Inspection Notices are being mailed out in waves, all notices should be mailed by June 15. If you haven’t received your notice and are concerned, you can walk in to 1300 Washington St. KCMO to speak to an assessment representative or go online starting June 15 to look up your value.


An assessment notice is not a tax bill and does not set your taxes; it assigns an estimate of market value to your property. Local taxing jurisdictions such as school districts, cities, library districts and counties each set their own levies (tax rates). The exact impact upon your individual tax bill cannot be calculated until this fall when the taxing jurisdictions, including state and local governments set their final levies for the year.


The actual tax levies will be set this fall by your local school boards, city councils, water districts, fire districts, library districts, the County Legislature and other taxing jurisdictions. Your real property tax bill will be calculated based on the following general formula:

  • Market Value x Classification % = Assessed Value x Tax Levy (as determined by City, School District, etc.) = Tax Bill


Classification Percentages

  • Residential - 19%
  • Agricultural - 12%
  • Commercial and All Other - 32%
