KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Tens of thousands of Jackson County property owners received notice this month that the value of their property jumped. That also means a jump in taxes owed the county.

In this week’s edition of the 41 Files podcast, host Taylor Hemness is joined by reporter Sarah Plake, who details how residents are reacting to the spike.

The podcast starts with late-breaking news during the podcast taping, including the possible future sale of the Schitterbahn Waterpark in Kansas City, Kansas, and the United States Department of Agriculture selecting the Kansas City region as home for the relocation of two facilities and hundreds of employees.
