Personal Property Second Notice

Personal Property List (Individual and Business) deadline May 1

Greene County Assessor Rick Kessinger has mailed reminder notices to Greene County residents and business owners who have not yet returned/filed on line their 2015 Personal Property and Business Assessment lists that were mailed in early January.

This year, individual and business personal property owners will receive a postcard with their personal identification number (PIN) to facilitate online filing of the list. For those who do not file online, please visit the Assessor's website at greenecountymo.org/assessor to print a list (Business or Individual) or call (417) 868-4101 and select the Personal Property option to request one. Assessment lists postmarked by May 1 will be accepted without penalty.

If you receive a second notice and believe you already returned your list or filed on line, or you have not received any assessment list/postcard, please call the Greene County Assessor's office at (417) 868-4101, or visit the office in the Greene County Historic Courthouse, 940 Boonville, Room 37, Springfield.  Office hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Missouri law (RSMo 137.115) requires residents to declare all taxable personal and business property to the assessor, including, but not limited to, motor vehicles and business-related property and equipment.  The assessment lists are the basis of 2015 individual and business property tax bills, which county residents and business owners receive from the County Collector in November.

Change Notices Mailed

Rick Kessinger, Greene County Assessor, has mailed the “2015 Notice of Change in Value of Real Property” to those property owners whose assessed value has increased for 2015. Kessinger said, “Please read and study the notice carefully. It contains most of the important information regarding the 2015 Reassessment. It is particularly important to notice the ‘Market Value 2015 line.’ This line represents the Assessor’s value of your property as of January 1, 2015.” The back of the notice also contains valuable information which will answer many questions, including how to appeal the value on the notice if you have market evidence that your property is over-valued.

Informal hearings, the first step in the appeal process, will be conducted from April 6th through May 4th and appointments must be scheduled by May 1st. Please call the following numbers for an informal hearing or for questions:

Residential & Agricultural Properties (417) 829-6180
Commercial Properties (417) 868-4094

New for this year is an increase of about 5% in Agricultural Land values, based on the most recent study conducted for the State Tax Commission. The per acre values for Agricultural land are the same in all counties in the State.

On the back of the change in value notice will be information regarding the State of Missouri’s income based “Property Tax Credit” program for seniors.

Reminder

Please remember the Beacon website is available to answer most of your questions regarding property address, location, ownership, taxing district, school district, section, township and range, along with maps. Our Beacon website is updated nightly so ownership should be current, depending on when the property was purchased. Maps in beacon come with a List of layers that can be selected for information such as Lot numbers in Subdivisions, School and Fire districts and City limits. There are also many tools available, such as measuring tools, buffers and lots of other features that are free to use as well.
