Cape Girardeau County will utilize the new rate when it sends out property tax bills later in the fall which will be due by December 31, 2021.  City officials say the sales tax (receipts) on general revenue have come in unexpectedly high during the first half of this year — and the language in the state statutes was the city would reduce our property tax by 50 percent of the sales tax (collection)
