KANSAS CITY, Mo. – There’s some good news for Jackson County property owners who are scared to open their property tax bill.
The county says it will waive online convenience and e-check fees for the second year. The county said it made the decision to encourage people to use the online option. Not only is this a safer option, leaders said, but both district courts currently have limited staff. Fewer people working could also lead to longer queues for those hoping to pay property bills in person.
All fees will be waived through December 31, 2021, which is also when payments are due.
Paying online means you’ll save $2 in convenience fees and $1.25 in e-check fees. Online credit card payments will still be charged 2.75%.
How to file Jackson County property taxes online:
- Visit the county payment site
- Create an account or continue as a guest
- Link accounts and search by name, address or property account number
- View and pay your bills
- Print or digitally store your receipts
Outside drop boxes for property tax payments are located at the west door of the Jackson County Courthouse in Kansas City and at the south door of the Historic Truman Courthouse in Independence.
Payment by mail
You can also mail your payment to the address provided on the invoice. Payments must be received or postmarked by December 31, to avoid penalties.
