Welcome to the new City of Lee’s Summit website

We’ve been working on this for a while with our citizens and City staff to design a website to serve your needs. We can’t wait for you to take a look around!

Property Tax

Residents of Jackson County can pay their property and real estate tax bills at Lee's Summit City Hall, Treasury Office. Image of taxpayers paying their tax bills.

Lee’s Summit has provided this service for taxpayers for over 35 years. Lee’s Summit will receive 1% of the tax dollars collected for acting as an agent for Jackson County.

Taxpayers can also place tax bill payments in the City’s night drop box, available 24-hours, conveniently located outside the north entrance to City Hall. A check must be attached to the tax bill with a contact phone number. Tax receipts for payments received via the night drop will be mailed to payees.

The Treasury office can also assist taxpayers with an incorrect tax statement.  Please note that titles, registrations or proof of sale documents are required for billing corrections.
