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.
