Property tax assessment petition underway in Stone County

Concerned citizens across Missouri, including both Taney and Stone County, are continuing to work toward ballot measures for property tax relief for senior citizens.  Senate Bill 190, approved by the Missouri legislature and signed by Governor Parson in 2023, includes the property tax assessment freeze along with other measures to reduce financial burdens on seniors. However, that portion of the bill must be approved on a county-by-county basis, either by vote of the county commissioners or by a percentage of registered voters signing a petition requesting the issue be placed on an upcoming ballot.

 

In Taney County, petition signatures exceeding the required minimum percentage of registered voters have been verified by the county clerk’s office as of April 29, and the County Commission will add the ballot approval as a meeting agenda item in the near future.

 

Petition efforts have also recently begun in Stone County, where resident Denise Tomanek is spearheading the effort. Volunteers as well as petition signers are needed, to help meet the goal of 1,100 signatures before July, in order to allow time for verification to place the measure on the ballot in November 2024.

 

Tomanek needs additional volunteers to distribute and collect petitions, as well as business owners willing to place a petition at their location. To volunteer, suggest or offer a location, or to clarify any questions about the bill’s content, Denise Tomanek at 678-367-4502 or email seniorsneedabreak@gmail.com.
