(Jefferson City, MO) – Time to pay up on local personal and real estate property taxes. The taxes are due by the end of each year before penalty charges begin to kick in.

The bills are for things like homes and commercial buildings, as well as vehicles, boats and other personal property registered in their county.

The taxes pay for local priorities, such as school districts, libraries, fire protection districts, among other things.

A shortage of new vehicles has led to higher annual property tax bills on used vehicles. Legislative bills have been filed to addressing the values.
