Current Bill Summary

SB 655 - For property assessment appeals to the boards of equalization in the City of St. Louis, St. Charles County, and St. Louis County, current law provides that the assessor shall have the burden to prove that the valuation does not exceed the true market value of the property. Additionally, if a physical inspection of a property is required for assessment, the assessor shall have the burden to prove that such inspection was performed. If the assessor fails to provide sufficient evidence that the inspection was performed, the property owner shall prevail on the appeal as a matter of law.

This act applies such provisions to all counties.

This act is identical to a provision contained in SB 579 (2020), is substantially similar to HB 2047 (2020) and to a provision contained in HB 1710 (2020) and HCS/SS#2/SB 704 (2020), and is similar to a provision contained in HCS/SS/SCS/SB 570 (2020) and HB 1409 (2020).
