I got a notification from my Missouri property management company on Monday that the property tax owed by my business for 2015 was overdue.
After reading the notification, I called the Missouri Taxpayer Assistance Program (MTAP), which is a federal agency that assists taxpayers with their property taxes.
The MTAP team explained to me that the late payment is a default.
If the property owner doesn’t pay the property taxes, the IRS will take possession of the property and pay the delinquent property taxes to the owner.
I called MTAP on Tuesday and was told that the agency had already started processing payments.
So now, I am back to square one.
I am owed $10,500.00, and the property has a default due to unpaid Missouri property taxes for 2015.
The defaulted property will be returned to me for payment.
MTAP representatives told me that they are looking into how to expedite payment, and that I should be contacted as soon as possible.
But, in the meantime, I’m left wondering whether I should pay the tax on my property.
How Can I Pay the Tax?
If you have a Missouri property that is delinquent, you will need to pay the outstanding Missouri tax on the property.
You can pay the taxes by either: • Paying by cash or check: You can send a check or money order to MTAP, or by cash to: MTAP
