City of Blue Springs Moves Forward in Property Tax Assessment Case

 

 

BLUE SPRINGS, MO. – City of Blue Springs Moves Forward in Property Tax Assessment Case Following Court's Denial of Jackson County's Motion to Dismiss

 

The City of Blue Springs joined the City of Independence in September 2023 and filed suit against Jackson County over the 2023 property tax assessment. At that time, the Blue Springs City Council issued the following joint statement:

“The Mayor and City Council are authorizing legal action to ensure the residents of Blue Springs receive a fair and consistent process for the assessment of real property in compliance with state law. 

 

We feel it is necessary at this time to take action and represent the citizens of Blue Springs against these unfair assessments amid growing unresolved complaints.”

 

On December 20, 2023, Cass County Associate Circuit Judge Derek Spencer, denied Jackson County’s Motion to Dismiss, confirming that the City may proceed to the merits of its claims. Judge Spencer was assigned the case after all Jackson County judges recused themselves. A full hearing on the case is scheduled for January 5, 2024.
