2. I am renewing two-year license plates. Which years’ personal property tax receipts do I need?

If you were assessed and paid taxes in Jackson County for the prior two years, you need the prior two years’ receipts.  If you cannot locate your Jackson County tax receipt for the appropriate year,  CLICK HERE to reprint your Official Paid Tax Receipt.  If you were assessed in another Missouri County, you should contact that county for copies of that county’s receipts.

3. I need to license a car not included on my paid tax receipt. What do I do?

If you bought your car after January 1 of last year, use last year's receipt. Property taxes are not owed on a vehicle new to you until you've owned it on January 1. If you owned the vehicle on January 1 of last year and it is not listed on your receipt, or is incorrect on your receipt or statement, please contact the Assessment Department.

You will need these documents to license your vehicle:

  • Copy of tax receipts or waiver from the county you are moving from for the past two years
  • Title, vehicle registration or renewal
  • Missouri Application for Title and Title (If a new purchase, the back of the title must be properly completed)

It is important that you contact the Jackson County Assessment Department and let them know you are now a resident of Jackson County and need to be placed on the tax rolls.

6. I did not owe personal property taxes last year in Jackson County.  How can I obtain my license plates?

The Motor Vehicle Bureau will accept a non-assessment form in place of a paid property tax receipt. This form states that you were neither assessed nor owe taxes in Jackson County. You may obtain a non-assessment form from the Assessment Department if:

  • you are new to the state of Missouri
  • you are licensing the first vehicle in your name
  • and, you do not have personal property tax obligation to any Missouri county

For additional information, contact the Assessment Department.
