Laclede County Assessor explains higher property tax valuations

Some Laclede County property owners are being informed of higher valuations on their commercial property. Laclede County Assessor Julie Rayl-Gilstrap said there is a reason for this. She said the county was “out of tolerance” with the State Tax Commission on commercial properties. “What I agreed to do was pretty much in the city of Lebanon, we had to reassess the commercial,” she said. “We are currently going driveway to driveway and will continue to do that to make adjustments and make sure we have good information on property,” she said. “We are taking pictures and measuring buildings, just making sure we have our information correct."
