What if I recently moved to Cass County from another state and have never paid personal property tax in Missouri?

If you have recently moved to Cass County, you will need to visit the Cass County Assessor's Office at 201 W Wall Street Harrisonville, MO, or by phone at 816-380-8400.  Please bring proof of ownership such as the title, registration form, renewal slip, or application for title.  Once a personal property tax account has been established, you can obtain a tax waiver from the collector's office.


What if I recently moved to Cass County from another county in Missouri?

If you have a current paid property tax receipt from your previous county, you will take that receipt along with the other required information to the DMV branch office.  However, it is important that you contact the Cass County Assessor's Office and let them know you are now a resident of Cass County and need to be placed on the tax rolls.

Several counties in Missouri, including Cass County, provide the DOR with paid personal property tax information.  The local branch offices should be able to electronically access these personal property records if you do not have copy of your tax receipt. Click here for a listing of those counties in Missouri that provide this information to the DOR.  

 

What if I have never owned a vehicle or have not owned a vehicle in several years?

You will need to visit the Cass County Assessor's Office at 201 W Wall Street or the Collector's Office at 201 W Wall Street, in the Cass County Courthouse Annex I.  Please bring proof of ownership such as the title, registration form, renewal slip, or application for title.   Once a personal property tax account has been established, you can obtain a tax waiver from the collector's office. 


What if my vehicle is not listed on my personal property tax receipt?

The vehicles listed on your personal property tax receipt should be those that you owned on January 1 of the tax year.  If the purchase date of the vehicle in question was later than January 1 of the tax year, then your tax receipt will be sufficient as is.  The license bureau will verify that the vehicle was not taxable for that year based on the purchase date.

If your vehicle was owned on January 1, and it is not listed on the paid personal property tax receipt, contact the Cass County Assessor's Office at 201 W Wall Street or by phone at 816-380-8400, so that your personal property account may be updated accordingly.


How much sales tax will I have to pay for my vehicle? 

The DOR provides a sales tax calculator to estimate the tax you may have to pay when you purchase a vehicle.  Sales tax is based on the sale price of the vehicle, net any trade-in or rebates that may apply.  The sales tax rate that applies depends on where you reside, not where the vehicle is purchased.

Sales tax/use rate charts are available from the DOR's website. Click here to generate tax rate cards for a specific county or city in Missouri.
