During these unprecedented times, our goal is to continue to serve Boone County taxpayers by providing essential services. However, will we be doing so with minimal staffing and modifications to normal business operations.

We encourage taxpayers to call or email the Collector’s office with questions or concerns. Paid property tax receipts and statements of non-assessments can be emailed. Most local vehicle licensing offices will accept these electronic copies. In addition, paid property tax records are provided weekly to the DOR for online licensing renewals or in-person visits to local license offices.

If you need to make a payment we request that payments be mailed, placed in our drop box at the Government Center entrance at the corner of 9th and Ash St., made online or over the phone by calling 1-877-690-3729.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and patience.

– The Staff of the Boone County Collector’s Office

Certificate of Non-Assessment


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.

Certificates of non-assessment may be issued in the following circumstances:

  • You are new to Missouri;
  • You are a former resident returning to Missouri and no unpaid personal property taxes are owed in Boone or any other Missouri County;
  • This is the first vehicle you have owned; or
  • You are exempt from personal property taxes (individuals or organizations who are determined tax exempt by the state), i.e., churches and most non-profit and charitable organizations.

To obtain a certificate of non-assessment, contact:
