Collector says tax statements for 2017 have been mailed

Tax statements for 2017 were mailed last week, according to Ozark County Collector Billy Hambelton, who shared the photo, left, of the statements being delivered to the post office. “People who own real estate and/or personal property in Ozark County should have received their statements by now,” Hambelton said.  “If you own personal property and resided in Ozark County on Jan. 1, 2017, you should have assessed your personal property.  If you did not receive a personal property tax bill, it is your obligation to contact the assessor’s office.” 

Anyone who owns property but did not receive a tax statement should contact the collector’s office at 679-4448. 

Taxes may be paid by mail or person at in the collector’s office in the basement of the Ozark County Courthouse. A door on the southeast corner of the courthouse provides a ground-floor entrance to the basement. Office hours are 8 a.m. to noon and 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Taxes become delinquent Jan. 1, 2018, after which penalties accrue according to Missouri State Statute, Hambelton said.
