Brian McCollum, Boone County Collector of Revenue, wishes to remind taxpayers that Boone County property taxes are due December 31, 2020. If taxpayers have not received their property tax statements, they should contact the collector’s office immediately. If taxpayers have yet to declare personal property as of January 1, 2020, they will need to contact the county assessor’s office and update their account. Failure to receive a bill by December 31, 2020 does not relieve the obligation to pay the taxes due, and any applicable late charges that may apply.
The Boone County Government Center will be closed December 24 and December 25.
The last day to pay property taxes in person at the collector’s office is Monday, December 31,
2020 by 5:00 pm. The collector’s office is located on the first floor of the Roger B. Wilson
Boone County Government Center, corner of 9th and Ash Streets in downtown Columbia.
Due to the pandemic, access to the Government Center will be limited and recommended public health guidelines will be followed. The collector’s office recommends avoiding the lines and crowds by using payment options other than an in-person visit.
Payments can be placed in the 24-hour drop box located near the 9th Street entrance of the government center any time before midnight on December 31, 2020. Payments that are placed in the drop box after December 31, 2020 will be considered delinquent and late charges will apply.
