Non-Assessment Information

A statement of non-assessment, also called a tax waiver, indicates a specific person, business or corporation does not owe any personal property taxes for a specified tax year. A tax waiver is vehicle specific and only used to license a vehicle. You may be entitled to a waiver if you are one of the following:
* A new resident to the state.
* This is the first vehicle you have ever owned or have had titled in your name.
* You did not own any personal property on January 1st of the prior year.
* You are military and your home of record is not Missouri.
* You lease a vehicle, and the leasing company has paid the personal property tax on that vehicle.
* In order to qualify, we must bring your vehicle title or current registration to the vehicle or vehicles you are needing to tag into the office.
* We do not except emailed copies or request.

Personal Property Information

1. You must be a resident of Jasper County, Missouri. If you are a resident of the State of Missouri, but not Jasper County, you must register and pay in the county you reside in January 1st of the tax year.

2. You must own some type of vehicle on January 1st of any given year. (Examples: cars, trucks, motorcycles, boats, trailers, and historic vehicles, or older models). Vehicles in your possession that are not running are taxable unless they are being used for parts. Taxes must be paid on anything that can be licensed.

3. Your personal property tax is based on the value of the vehicles you owned January 1st of the tax year. It is not based on the number of vehicles you own. Even if you no longer own the vehicles, even if you now own different vehicles, or if you now own no vehicles, you pay tax based on what you owned the first day of the year. The value of the vehicles is established by the county Assessor, using a state approved book.

4. If your vehicle was purchased after January 1st of this year it should not be listed on this year's tax statement. Also most leased vehicles are paid by the lease company.

5. You are responsible for filling out and turning in as Assessment Sheet at the beginning of each year in the Assessor's Office. If you fail to do this you will not receive a tax statement at the end of the year and you will be liable for penalties incurred for not turning an Assessment Sheet in on time.

6. You should receive as Assessment Sheet to fill out on or before January 15th of any given year. If you have not received one by this date, notify the Assessor's Office at 417-358-0437 to find out the reason why. You are liable for all penalties. Failure to receive your tax statement does not relieve obligation of paying taxes with penalties.

7. If you are separated or in the process of divorce during any year after which you have filled out an Assessment on January 1, you must work out who is to pay the entire bill for that year. Assessment Sheets may be filled out separately for the following year.
