It was business as usual for the Moniteau County offices in 2019.
A feature that is in its second year coming out of the assessor's office will continue to make filing county resident personal property taxes just a little easier. As paper copies of the assessment sheets were mailed out Jan. 2; there is still the option for taxpayers to report their properties online. The instructions on the e-filing process have been included in the mailed packets, hopefully saving some time and possible frustration.
Personal property includes anything from trucks, cars, trailers and farm equipment to livestock and mobile homes.
All information is due back to the courthouse by March 1, but there will be a small window to waive the penalty if the assessment sheets are late. The penalties range from $15-$105, simply depending on the value of the personal property in question.
In the event of a move, residents need to make sure their current addresses are logged with the assessor's office.
If a form does not make it to one's home, simply contact the assessor's office, call 573-796-4637 or visit the courthouse at 200 E. Main St., California.
