Statement of Non-Assessment Information

In order to obtain a current vehicle registration or renew license plates from the Missouri Department of Revenue, you must present a personal property tax receipt or certificate of non-assessment for the prior year to the license office.

A non-assessment is issued to a county resident when no personal property tax was assessed for the prior year. This certificate is used in lieu of a paid personal property tax receipt when registering a vehicle or renewing license plates. No fee is charged for a certificate of non-assessment.
