Title

Public Hearing: Proposed 2019 Property Tax Levy for the City of Lee's Summit, Cass and Jackson Counties, Missouri, for the Calendar Year 2019.

 

Body

Issue/Request:

Public Hearing - Tax Levy for the City of Lee's Summit, Cass and Jackson Counties, Missouri, for the Calendar Year 2019.

 

Key Issues:

Consideration and setting of the tax levies for the General Fund; Parks and Recreation Fund; and, Debt Service Fund for the City of Lee's Summit, for the calendar year 2019 (Fiscal Year 2020).

 

 

 

Background:

Each year the City Council must set the tax levies to be applied to property within the City limits for the General Fund, the Parks and Recreation Fund, and the Debt Service Fund.  The Cass County Assessor and Jackson County Assessor provide the assessed values for all property located within the City limits, and, state statutes require the City Council to set the tax levies by October 1, of each year.  Once the tax levies are set, the levies are forwarded to the County Clerks of Cass and Jackson Counties who certify the levies, and ultimately the State Auditor's Office provides final certification of the tax levy rates.  Once the tax levy rates are granted final certification, the tax levy rate is applied to the properties within the City limits, and, the resulting tax amounts are forwarded by the respective County Clerks to the County Collector's Office of Cass and Jackson Counties, respectively.
