Update Wednesday, March 18, 2020
The Office of Collector has been exposed to a presumptive positive case of coronavirus (the presumed positive case is NOT a County employee). Our exposed employee has no symptoms and had minimal contact with anyone outside our office.
Under instructions from the Missouri Department of Health, we are all isolating ourselves for 14 days from the date of exposure—March 17, 2020.
We are making every effort to answer our phones and email, and to process online payments, mailed payments, and drop box payments in a timely manner.
Updates about our status will be posted here. See our frequently asked questions for answers about taxes.
We have several staff that are not equipped to work remotely, thus our response times will be slower as senior staff attempt to perform multiple functions. We look forward to serving you in person again soon.
Please know that Collector staff met and exceeded all recommendations by the health department in dealing with this exposure. Our particular cases raises no concern for anyone else in the building. We also communicated our protocols through risk management and public services and everyone is on board. According to the health department, Collector staff are at minimal risk, and there is virtually no risk to those that worked outside of our office. We have isolated ourselves only because we want to be proactive and follow the highest level of precaution.
