(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) With the new year approaching, it's time to start thinking about doing taxes.

The Buchanan County Collector's Office said the last day for St. Joseph citizens to turn in their property tax payment is Sunday, December 31st.

The 31st falls on a Sunday, so the last day to turn the payment in to the collector's office in person is Friday, December 29th.

"There's no statute - Missouri statute - that allows them [taxes] to be paid late," Peggy Campbell, Buchanan County collector, said. "That's anything after January 1st. So, please get that postmark on there, or come in and pay. We will stay until the last person's taken care of."

The Collector's office is located in the Buchanan County Courthouse, and will be open from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday.

Online payments can be made up until midnight on December 31st before they are considered late.

A nine percent increase will be added for anyone who decides to wait and pay their property tax in January.

The next chance for rain will be on Tuesday as our next storm system pushes through. Rainfall amounts will be anywhere from a quarter to three quarters of an inch. This is something we will be keeping an eye on closely as it could cause some minor rises on river levels. Highs on Tuesday will be in the upper 40s to near 50 degrees.
