Under Missouri law, you are eligible to file an appeal in 2020 only if you did not file an appeal in 2019 or if there has been new construction on your property. “New construction” is significant construction, demolition, or other physical change to the inside or outside of your property.
When can I file my appeal?
The 2020 filing period is May 1 – July 13, 2020 (the second Monday of July).

How will hearings be conducted?
In order to protect the health and safety of all participants, hearings will be conducted in July and August by video conference or telephone conference only. Due to the COVID-19 Emergency, in-person Hearings are not being scheduled at this time, and will be available at a later date.
At the time you file your appeal, you may choose your preferred method of hearing or waive your right to a hearing. If you waive your hearing, the BOE will consider all the materials submitted by the taxpayer and the Assessor’s office, and then make a ruling without holding a hearing.
Please remember that you are required to submit your evidence to the Board seven (7) days after filing your appeal. Evidence may be submitted online, by U.S. Mail, or in person at the Clayton lobby drop box.
The Board's decisions on the property value are generally mailed in September to the property owner.
These 'decision letters' contain instructions on how to appeal to the State Tax Commission if the property owner disagrees with the Board's decision.
