If you own property in Greene County, pay close attention to the mail in the next few weeks.
Greene County Assessor Rick Kessinger has reassessed real estate as required by Missouri Law every odd numbered year. Kessinger estimates that 70 percent of Greene County real estate owners will receive a notice of a change to their property’s value.
“It is important that residents understand this is not a notice of tax increases,” Kessinger said in a statement. “Assessors are only responsible for placing a value on the property and that value is based on a number of factors, including current land values, construction costs and recent market data.”
Only property owners whose assessed value has increased will receive a notice from the Assessor.
Residents with questions about a valuation can call the Assessor’s office between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday from today through May 24th on two dedicated lines. If you have questions on residential or agricultural properties, call 417-829-6180. If you have a question on a commercial property, the number is 417-868-4094.
