How the Assessment Process Works

Assessment is the process of placing a value on property for the purpose of property taxation. The Assessor is charged with placing fair market value on property as of the tax date. This assures the tax burden is distributed fairly among those responsible for payment. The property tax in Missouri is “ad valorem” meaning the taxes are based on the property value.
