Assessment Lists Are Due March 1

Douglas County Assessor Alicia Degase reminds property owners that 2017 assessment lists are due in her office prior to March 1.

Assessment forms were mailed out several weeks ago and Missouri law requires that the forms be returned to the assessor’s office by March 1. Those who do not return their forms by the deadline are subject to a penalty that is based on property values.

The penalties are mandatory, and statues provide almost no discretion to waive penalties, Degase said.

Anyone who did not receive an assessment form in the mail, or if you need help filling out the form, you may contact the assessor’s office in the courthouse, at 683-2829.
