  • Questions about a personal property tax bill assessment, name, or address change should be addressed to the Assessor's Office.

 

Additional Information

Once your bill is received, you can make payments on the bill until it is paid in full. If there is a balance on the account as of January 1, you will be subject to penalty and interest. If there are prior year taxes owed, you must pay the oldest tax year first and all taxes and fees must be paid in full to license the vehicle. Taxes that remain unpaid after December 31st may have a suit filed against them and will incur additional associated fees.

Please note that making payments towards delinquent personal property tax balances will not stop suit from being filed per Missouri State Statute.
