From the Desk of Jim Hansen
Benton County Assessor

Jim Hansen, Benton County Assessor, would like to remind everyone that assessment lists are due in his office by March 1, 2024. All Benton County residents who own taxable personal property must furnish the assessor a list by March 1, 2024, to avoid late penalties. Late penalties range from $10 to $100 depending upon the value of the property. The Assessor's Office will send second notices to any property owner who does not file by March 1st.

Taxable personal property includes vehicles, boats, boat motors, airplanes, travel trailers, mobile homes, livestock, farm machinery, and all licensed trailers. If you have lifetime plates on your vehicle or trailer, you still need to list this.

If you have not received a list in the mail, please call the assessor's office at (660) 438-5473 so that one will be sent to you. Regular hours for the assessor's office are 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM and 1:00 PM to 4:30 PM.
