About our office.....
David and his staff are responsible for the valuation of all the property within the 564 square miles that comprise Christian County. There are over 33,580 parcels of real estate property and over 32,743 personal property accounts representing the entirety of the taxable proptery within Christian County.
With a total assessed value of over $794 million in 2006, Christian County is one of the fastest growing counties in the State of Missouri.
The Assessor's job is to place value on all taxable real and personal property, within the county as of January 1st, the assessment date set by the State Statue. All county assessor's offices are regulated and overseen by the Missouri State Tax Commission. Monthly visits by field representatives and annual spot reviews or properties, aid them in evaluating the Assessor's compliance with the statue requirements. This includes real estate and personal property of all individuals and businesses.
The assessed value, as determined by the Assessor's office, is a percentage of the market value of the property. The assessment percentage is set by state law and determined by the classification of the property. Agricultural 12%, Residential 19% and Commercial at 32%. The assessed property value is one part of the formula in determining property taxes, with the other factor being a tax rate, which is determined by the various taxing entities and jurisdictions.
David and his staff are glad you visited our site. Please call our office if you have any questions. We are glad to provide you with any help and assistance that you may need. THANK YOU!!!
