2015 Assessment Lists Mailed – Online Filing for Individual and Business Accounts

Greene County Assessor Rick Kessinger has mailed 2015 Individual and Business Personal Property Assessment lists to Greene County residents and business owners.

"I am very excited to offer the online filing option for Business Assessment Lists for the first time in Greene County," Kessinger said. Again this year, online filing for individual lists is also available. Individuals that filed online last year will receive a postcard with their PIN number for this year. All other individuals will receive an Assessment List with the PIN number included. To file online, go to the Greene County Assessor’s website at www.greenecountymo.org/assessor and then click on “Personal Assessment Online” for individuals and “Business Property Management” for businesses.

All assessment lists must be filed online or returned to the Assessor’s Office no later than March 1 to avoid late filing penalties, which range from $10 to $100, based on the total assessed value.

Missouri law (Section 137.115 RSMo) requires owners to declare all taxable personal and business property to the assessor, including motor vehicles, boats, trailers, livestock, farm machinery, mobile homes (not classified as Real Estate) and business-related equipment, machinery and vehicles. The assessment lists are the basis of 2015 personal and business property tax bills, which county residents and business owners receive from the County Collector in November.

Personal Property Assessment lists are pre-printed with items assessed last year. These items will also appear on the online forms. Taxpayers should carefully review their lists for accuracy. The property owner must sign the oath on the form (if not filing online), any unsigned lists will be returned for signature before being processed.

Residents and business owners who have not received an assessment list or postcard by January 23 should call the Greene County Assessor’s Office at (417) 868-4101, or visit the Historic Greene County Courthouse, 940 N Boonville Ave Room 37, Springfield.

Callers are advised that the Assessor’s phones are typically very busy during January, and the courthouse is closed Monday, Jan. 19 for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Callers may wish to try contacting the office later in the month for service.
