Jackson County Collection Department having Problems with Property Taxes THOUSANDS OF JACKSON County residents are having trouble with their personal property taxes. Theyve paid them but they just cant prove it. Long lines and plenty of frustrations are now common place at the Jackson County Collections Department. Officials said the problem is due to a computer glitch that is showing thousands of homeowners property taxes as delinquent even though they have been paid. The departments computer system was upgraded but its required extra training and lots of trial and error. Other glitches include a printing problem and an error with a processing computer that affected some twelve thousand taxpayers. But the departments said they are making changes, added more staff and are upgrading their website. They said the want to have taxpayers eventually estimate their own vehicle taxes and get many of their questions answered on-line.

Officials said there are still 3,000 payments that need to be processed and those should be finished by Friday February 18. In the meantime, the department is issuing temporary receipts. If you are having a problem call Jackson County Executive Katherine Shields office at 816-881-3333.
