Collector of Revenue

Roles and Responsibilities

The Collector of Revenue serves as the billing, collecting and disbursing agent for more than 200 different taxing districts in St. Louis County.

The Collector efficiently manages this complex and overlapping taxing environment by offering a centralized process to expedite the receipt and distribution of over $1.8 billion annually for:

  • Personal Property Taxes
  • Real Estate Property Taxes
  • Railroad and Utility Taxes
  • Merchant's and Manufacturer's Taxes

Each taxing authority provides their individual tax rates to the Collector of Revenue, who combines those rates into individual tax bills.
