Property owners who want to contest the assessed value of their property may now file an appeal to the St. Louis County Board of Equalization (BOE). By state law all appeals regardless of filing method must be filed or postmarked on or before the second Monday in July. That date is July 9 this year. Late filings cannot be accepted.
Paper appeal forms may be obtained at the BOE office, located on the second floor of the Lawrence K. Roos County Administration Building, 41 S. Central Ave. in Clayton.
Residential and agricultural forms are also available at the county satellite offices:

The BOE office will notify property owners of their hearing date and time after the appeal has been received. At the hearing, property owners will need to provide supporting documentation regarding property values and should be prepared to leave a legible copy of all paperwork with the BOE.
The 2018 hearings run July 12-19 at The Crossings at Northwest location. Hearings run July 24-Aug. 9 in Crestwood at 9059 Watson Road. Residents are encouraged to file early to ensure they receive their desired location.
