Is there tax relief for senior or disabled citizens?

Yes, if you qualify. The Missouri Property Tax Credit program (MO-PTC) gives credit to qualifying senior citizens and 100% disabled individuals for a portion of the real estate taxes or rent they have paid for a year. Visit the Missouri Department of Revenue website for more information.

Mobile Home or Land

If you own a mobile home or own more than 5 acres of land, you will need an Assessor’s Certification Form 948. Please call the Assessor at 636-797-5466 to request this form. For more information about this program you can call the Missouri Department of Revenue at 573-751-3505 or the Mid-East Area on Aging at 800-243-6060.
