In Missouri, assessments are completed every other year, on the odd-numbered years. Taxing authorities in the county, not the Assessor, are responsible for setting and adjusting tax rates. Taxing authorities include school boards, fire districts, water districts, libraries, cities, counties, junior colleges, and various funds – including the mental health fund, disabled services fund and blind pension. Jackson County receives only about 7 cents of every tax dollar, while the remaining 93 cents of every tax dollar goes to the taxing authorities.
