What do I need to begin?
You need to have your 2018 Jackson County Personal Property Declaration Form. This will provide you with your account number and your PIN, both of which are needed to file your declaration online.
How does the process work?
This process is very similar to what has been required of residents in years past, but is simpler and faster. You should be done in a matter of minutes. Instead of filling out and mailing the paper form, you may complete the form online, and submit it with a few simple keystrokes and mouse clicks. There is a HELP screen available on each page to answer any questions that may come up during the process.
How do I ensure that the property on my account is in the proper taxing jurisdiction?
The County is requesting that you declare the proper Jackson County street address (location) of the owner of this property as of January 1, 2018, even though it may be the same as the mailing address. Thank you for your cooperation.
Is there anything else that I need to know?
You may use this online system – even if you wish to make no changes to your declaration. Also, please note that once you complete the online form and click "Submit", you will not be allowed to make further changes online. Should you need to make further changes to your personal property account later, you will need to visit a courthouse location; and our staff will assist you. The information you declare through this process is for the 2018 tax year (any and all property you owned on January 1, 2018). It will only be available on Tax Search after May 31, 2018.
