Alert: The Greene County Collector’s Office will not be holding the 2020 tax sale for delinquent real estate taxes. What does this mean for taxpayers? If properties have delinquent real estate taxes, those properties will not be offered at the tax sale this year in August. However, this does not dismiss, postpone, or eliminate any tax liability. Due to Missouri State Statutes, county taxes, if left unpaid, will still be delinquent, accrue additional interest, penalty, and costs as well as be eligible for the tax sale in August 2021. We continue to urge the public to make all efforts necessary to get delinquent taxes caught up to avoid the sale in August 2021.

My name is Leah Betts and I am the Greene County Collector. I am an elected official and therefore, I work for you! I thank you for entrusting me with this office. My goal is to do my job well and create an environment that is surprisingly pleasant. 

The Assessor's office assesses property (both real estate and personal property). The County Clerk uses their assessed values and the taxing district levies to calculate the tax bills. The Collector's office then sends out the bills.  We collect over a quarter of a billion dollars each year and distribute the collections to nearly 40 local taxing districts such as schools, cities, the library, etc. 

You must fill out an assessment list for personal property in January of each year; real estate is automatically assessed. We send bills out in November. If you don't receive your bill by Thanksgiving, you need to give us a call. You must pay your bill by December 31st in order to avoid late fees. 

I urge you to read the information on the Must Read link to learn specific details about this process. We want to exceed your expectations and are here to cheerfully help you. Please do not hesitate to contact our office.
