Christian County Clerk Kay Brown announced that the Christian County Board of Equalization will begin meetings at 1 p.m., July 1, 2019, at the historic Christian County Courthouse to hear those who disagree with the assessed values of real estate and personal property established for the 2019 tax year.
The board tentatively plans to conclude the hearings by 4 p.m. July 31. Appointments must be made prior to that date.
The first process for a tax appeal would be an informal hearing with Assessor Danny Gray to exchange information and discuss the value of your property. The Christian County Assessor’s Office can be reached at (417) 582- 4310. If a resolution cannot be reached with the assessor, then property owners are asked to contact the Christian County Commission to schedule a hearing with the Board of Equalization.
Property owners who wish to appeal their assessments must make an appointment no later than June 28, 2019, and should contact the commission office at (471) 582-4300 for the necessary forms for such an appeal. Property owners appearing before the board should be prepared to present evidence to establish what they believe to be the correct value of their property.
If after a decision of the board, the property owner is still dissatisfied with the assessment, the appeal may be heard by the State Tax Commission and thereafter to circuit court.
