Sample Property Tax Report for a St Louis County, MO property

The Missouri Constitution is the main legal document regarding property taxation in the State of Missouri. It stipulates that property taxes are determined at local levels and are used for paying services such as schools, libraries, park districts, fire protection districts and others. In Missouri, real estate property includes "land and everything affixed or attached to the land", with the exception of trailers and mobile homes, which are considered personal property, and are, thus, taxed differently.

Market Value

The Saint Louis County Assessor's Office establishes the appraised values, also known as market values, for all taxable real property in the county. Market value has been defined by The Supreme Court as the sale price of real estate as agreed upon between a willing buyer and willing seller, with neither being under duress to buy or sell.

Land value $37,100
Building value + $101,900
Market value = $139,000
Assessed Value

Assessed value is calculated using assessment ratios set by the State Legislature, which are applied to the market value. Currently, the assessment ratios applicable for real estate property in Saint Louis County are: 19% for residential properties, 12% for agricultural properties and 32% for commercial properties.

Land value $7,050
Building value + $19,360
Assessed value = $26,410
Exemptions And Taxable Value

Various property tax exemptions are available and may lower the property's tax bill. These are deducted from the assessed value to give the property's taxable value. Exempt real estate includes: property owned by governments, property used exclusively for religious worship, non-profit cemeteries, schools and colleges, property used for purely charitable purposes and specific properties located in the state's economic development zones.

We have no information about whether any exemptions currently apply to this property. Therefore, the taxable value will be equal to the assessed value.

Property Tax

Property tax is calculated by multiplying the taxable value by the coresponding tax rates. Actual taxes might differ from the figures displayed here due to various abatement, financial assistance programs or to sewer lateral fees.

Base tax is an estimate of what an owner not benefiting of any exemptions would pay..

Tax description Assessed value Tax rate Tax amount
Residential $26,410 * 8.7621% = $2,314.07
Base tax = $2,314.07
