E-File Personal Property Assessments
Online filing will be active from January 2nd to April 30th. You must file by March 1st each year to avoid paying a late filing penalty.
The assessor’s job is to place a value on all taxable real and personal property, within the county as of January 1, the assessment date set by statute. All county assessor’s offices are regulated, and overseen, by The Missouri State Tax Commission. www.stc.mo.gov. Monthly visits by field representatives, and annual spot-review of properties, aid them in evaluating the assessor’s compliance with the statute requirements.
There are two types of local property taxes, Real Estate and Personal Property.
Personal Property Assessment
State Statute 137.280 RSMo., requires every taxpayer to turn in a listing of their personal property, as of January 1, to the assessor between January 1, and March 1. Failure to submit a listing by March 1, can result in a late assessment penalty, up to $105.00. You may mail your assessment back to us, bring it in to our office, or file online between January 2nd and April 30th at:
Real Estate Assessment
The Dent County Assessor’s office currently tracks and assesses over 11,000 parcels and classifies each parcel of real estate in compliance with the classifications defined under Missouri Statute.
Real Estate property has three subclasses—Residential @ 19% of market value; Agricultural @ 12% of production value; and All Other @ 32% of true value in money.
The Assessor and their staff must review real properties to assess any new structures, remove value from structures that have been removed from the property or no longer hold value, as well as properly depreciate existing structures. Reassessment occurs every two years in odd-numbered years. The purpose of reassessment is to equalize values among taxpayers and to adjust values to current market conditions. New Construction and additions to existing improvements are added to the assessment every year.
It is indeed a pleasure to serve as your Assessor and if you have any questions that were not answered here, please contact the office and I or one of the staff members will be more than happy to provide you with an answer or direct you to the person that can.
