Personal Property Tax Declarations Due Today

St. Louis, MO – Today (Friday) is the last day St. Louis City residents can turn in their personal property tax forms.

No money is due, but residents have to declare their taxable personal property. That includes cars, boats, and aircraft.

Forms postmarked today are also accepted, or people can turn them in at the Assessor's office at St. Louis City Hall.

People who turn in forms late will face a 10% penalty.

City Assessor Ed Bushmeyer adds there is sometimes confusion: "Our form is due April First and federal taxes are due April 15th and so sometimes that April 15th date sticks in their mind. So, we will get a fair number of forms right around April 15th - folks thinking they're filing in a timely manner."

People in Jefferson, St. Charles, and St. Louis Counties had to turn their forms in March 1st, though Jefferson County residents won't face penalties until May First.
