Jackson County will offer extended weekend hours for tax collection at Truman Courthouse in Independence, 112 W. Lexington Ave., from 8 a.m. to noon on Sat., Dec. 10, and Sat., Dec. 17.

Taxpayers can make in-person tax payments, get a copy of their bill, modify their account, or ask questions of the Assessment and Collection Departments. These services are also available online.

Taxpayers can also make effortless payments through the mobile and web-based application, MyJacksonCounty. The mobile app is available for download on Apple and Android devices. The website link is

Although paying online is strongly encouraged to curb huge crowds, the department knows people favor completing business tasks in person.

“As a result, it is important for us to continue to provide extended weekend hours for taxpayers to make payments. Many taxpayers have taken advantage of this opportunity over the years and we expect that to be the case again,” said Dept. of Collection Director Whitney Miller.

The Dept. of Collection mailed tax bills in November. Individuals who don’t receive a bill are still responsible for paying their taxes which are due by Sat., Dec. 31.

Those who haven’t received a bill by Dec. 10 should check their account online or call the Dept. of Collection at (816) 881-3232 to disclose the amount due.
