Taxpayer outrage leads county board to reassess casino property taxes

(KMOV) – Taxpayer outrage gets a St. Louis County Board to reevaluate the assessed value and property taxes of two casinos.

The board of equalization reversed its decision to cut the market value of River City Casino by 58 percent. Members set the value and tax bill at last year’s level. That keeps schools and fire departments from making big cuts.

The board refused to reduce Harrah’s market value by $152 million, but next year, Harrah’s will pay more in taxes.

St. Louis County Councilman Steve Stenger asked the state auditor’s office to review the county’s assessment process.
