The St. Charles County Assessor mailed approximately 42,000 personal property notices last week, notifying taxpayers of assessment changes.
Taxpayers who reported additional personal property or made corrections to their 2019 personal property assessments received the notice.
“This notice, which is separate from the real estate assessments that were just mailed, alerts taxpayers of the change in their personal property assessment and allows time to appeal the value within the statutory appeal timeframe,” Shipman explained. “Our intention is to help citizens avoid issues at the end of the year when they receive their tax bills. It is too late to appeal the assessed value at that point.”
Taxpayers can visit sccmo.org/assessor for more information and answers to frequently asked questions, including about appeal procedures. Citizens also can contact the assessor’s office for assistance at (636) 949-7420 or (800) 822-4012, ext. 7420.
