MAYOR'S CORNER

Update to Mayor's Corner Article on Tax Appraisals 

If you will remember back to our September issue, I wrote an article about Clarkson Valley's Assessed Valuation and Tax Appraisals.  I would like to update that information with the 2007 tax rate information.  The tables below compare the tax rate for 2006 and 2007.  Even though there are four types of property in our City, I will confine my remarks to residential.  The tax rate for our homes is in the RES column below.  Remember, the calculation for residential tax is 19% of the assessed value.  The formula then is: (appraised market value) x (assessed rate 19%) x (applicable tax rate) = the amount of tax on your property. 

You will note the rate for each of the taxing authorities decreased with the exception of the County Park Maintenance and the Special School District resulting in an overall rate decrease from 7.6313 to 7.0561.  Then why did my taxes go up for 2007?  As mentioned in the September article, 2007 was the bi-annual reassessment conducted by St. Louis County.  Assessed value of homes is up, taxes up! 

Note:  Clarkson Valley's rate is reduced from .1290 to .1030 with the increased home valuation it is assured we will retain the same level of revenues.  

Example

Total County tax for a $600,000 value home = $8,043 and Clarkson Valley's portion is $117.00 

Please contact City Hall if you would like a copy of the original article.
