KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Officials with the Jackson County Assessment Department said on Monday that they have completed reviews of the nearly 22,000 residential informal property assessment appeals that were submitted.

According to the county, the review requests account for 7.3 percent of all residences in Jackson County.

The reviewed appeals do not include informal residential appeals or any of the formal appeals made.

Jackson County residents were upset when the property assessments were released, with many assessments doubling or tripling.

The appeal deadline was even extended to accommodate the confusion surrounding the appeal process, since so many residents planned to appeal.

The Assessment Department will send out decisions on informal appeals primarily by email. After that, property owners have 21 days to file a formal appeal with the Board of Equalization.

Officials did not give a timeline for when formal appeals will be completed.
