Tax notices go out Nov. 10

Posted

Gasconade County Collector Shawn Schlottach’s office will be mailing out 2021 tax statement starting Nov. 10 with current charges expected to generate approximately $16,013,630 in receipts.

Real estate and personal property tax assessments are expected to produce $14,051,308 of that total. Railroad and utility taxes will bring in an anticipated $1,929,451. Business licenses, private rail car taxes and drainage levee district assessments make up the remaining charges. 

The tax charges will be shared among 40 separate political taxing entities with certified property tax levies. Delinquency notices, not included in the above totals, will also be mailed, according to a release Schlottach.

Taxpayers in the cities of Gasconade and Bland will see increases in their tax rate from late year. There will be a 20.17-cent increase for residents in the city of Gasconade and Bland residents will see an increase of $1.1763 per $100 of assessed valuation.

A decrease in the tax rate of 6.89 cents per $100 of assessed valuation will be seen for residents in the Osage County R-2 School District in Linn. 

There will be an 18.98-cent decrease for residents in the Owensville Area Ambulance District. Owensville city residents will see a decrease of 7.80 cents per $100 of assessed valuation.

The county collects ad valorem personal property and real estate taxes for all six cities within Gasconade County which have a certified tax rate. City taxes for Hermann, Owensville, Bland, Rosebud, Gasconade and Morrison will be included on the county tax statements.

Payment of taxes can be remitted by mail, in-person to the Collector’s Office, a drop box located at the top of ramp outside the courthouse, by calling 1-800-652-0405 or on-line by visiting the county’s secure web site 24/7 at www.gasconadecountycollector.com.

A convenience fee of 2.4 percent — with a minimum fee of $1.50 of the total transaction — will be added or a $3.95 flat fee for Visa Debit when paying by credit card. This fee is not retained by the Collector or the county.  Paid receipts are mailed from the Collector’s office within one business day.  The web site also contains other helpful county tax information.

Eligible taxpayers can file for tax credits under the “Missouri Property Tax Credit Program” by contacting the Missouri Department of Revenue at 573-751-3505 or emailing propertytaxcredit@dor.mo.gov or visit the county’s web site for a printable form to file.

To avoid late fees all taxes are due by Dec. 31. If paying by mail a “post mark” determines current status. If one owns property — personal or real estate — and does not receive a tax bill by Nov. 22, you are asked to contact the County Collector’s Office at 573-486-2711. Tax statements are mailed as a convenience to the taxpayer.  Failure to receive a tax statement does not relieve the taxpayer of their obligation to pay taxes when due.

2022 Personal Property Assessment forms will be mailed out the first week of January and must be returned to Assessor’s office by March 1, 2022, to avoid a late assessment penalty.

Office hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and closed on state and federal holidays.
