In conjunction with this year’s reassessment, the Missouri State Tax Commission (STC) has recommended a county-wide increase to help insure that our assessed valuation keeps pace with the recent sales trends in the real estate market. Due to the nature of the economy, among other reasons, I have decided to not accept the STC’s recommendation. Reassessment has occurred per state statute, but the only value increases in Phelps County for 2023 will be due to new construction (improvements to the property) or changes in the use of property (from residential to commercial, etc). We will begin mailing change notices the week of June 12. If you receive a change notice and have any questions concerning it, please feel free to contact my office.
New Assessor Appointed
Tim Kean has been appointed by Governor Parson to be the Assessor of Phelps County for the remainder of the term that was vacated due to the passing of Bill Stoltz.
Tim has worked in the Asssessor's Office for the last 17 years as the GIS Coodinator and Mapper for the county.
He has an excellent working knowledge of real estate and personal property as well.
The Assessor's Office would like to congratulate Tim on his appointment and continued service to the citizens of Phelps County in his new role!
