Informal Review & Appealing Assessment Value Notices

There are 3 ways you can take action to appeal your property assessment:

  1. Informal Review: (The deadline for filing a 2017 Informal Review has passed.) If you are not satisfied with the estimated market value placed on your property or you feel your reassessment notice is incorrect, you may file an Informal Review request with the Assessment Department by completing the Informal Review request form online or by calling 816-881-4601 during regular business hours (8 a.m. - 5 p.m., Monday - Friday, excluding holidays observed by Jackson County) on or before Monday, June 12, 2017.

    Those who did not file an Informal Review Request for 2017 prior to June 12 will be unable to access the Informal Review Request online application.

  2. Board of Equalization: (The deadline for filing a 2017 BOE Appeal has passed.) You have the right to appeal the estimated 2017 market value placed on your property to the Jackson County Board of Equalization (BOE). Appeals to the BOE must be filed on or before Monday, July 10, 2017. This date is set by Missouri state law; Jackson County has no authority to extend it. Along with your appeal form, you should provide documentation to support your opinion of value. The Board will notify you of the date, time and location of your scheduled hearing. If you do not appear at your scheduled hearing, the Board may hear your case and value your property based upon the evidence presented.

    You can contact the BOE staff at or by calling 816-881-3309.

  3. State Tax Commission (STC): If you disagree with the decision of the Board of Equalization, you have the right to appeal to the State Tax Commission. Appeals to the STC must be filed within 30 days of the Board of Equalization's decision or by September 30, 2017, whichever is later. For more information about filing an appeal see
    Missouri State Tax Commission.
