– 2004 Ratio Refund Distribution Information
In May 2005, Property Assessment Review settled our 2001-2004
discrimination appeals in St. Louis County. Years of hard work has
finally achieved the expected result. In addition to value reductions
obtained at the Board of Equalization and the State Tax Commission,
PAR achieved tax refunds for our clients of approximately 11% for
2002 and 12% per year for 2003 and 2004.
From December 2005 to August 2006, St. Louis County issued refund
distribution checks in batches of 40 to 50 parcels per check with
appeal numbers, locator numbers, refund amounts and interest amounts
per parcel and appeal year.
After receipt of each County distribution check, PAR sent notifications
to those parcel owners on the corresponding County distribution
list that their refund was available and to verify ownership of
the parcel for the indicated years. After the fully signed and initially
Ownership Verification was received, PAR promptly issued checks
payable to the ownership for the refund less PAR’s fee along
with the County's adjusted tax bill.
We have now settled all 2001-2004 ratio appeals. If you have any questions regarding the distribution,
please call Dave Dempsey or Steve Weber at 314-361-4600.
