2021 Assessment Forms Online Only

The Assessment Department will not be mailing paper assessment forms this year. To complete your assessment form online, click the button below, then click the link for Online Assessment. There are also links to each form if you would prefer to print, fill it out and mail it in.

Assessment Waiver

If you are a new Missouri resident or haven’t owned a vehicle in more than a year you may be entitled to a waiver. You will need to take a picture of the front and back of your title, application for title or out of State registration to upload to our form. We will review your paperwork and issue the waiver or email you back with any questions.

Tax Bill Not Received

If you have been a Clay County resident and owned a vehicle but didn’t receive a tax bill it’s possible you weren’t assessed and need to be. You can call our office at 816-407-3520 and speak to an Assessment employee. We may be able to handle it over the phone with you. You may also use the live chat feature at the bottom right of this page or send an email to [email protected] and we will help you as soon as we are able.

Need to Tag a Vehicle

If you need to tag a vehicle that isn’t on your tax receipt and you did own it on January 1st of the previous year, you may call our office at 816-407-3520 to speak to an Assessment employee. We may be able to handle this over the phone. If you purchased the vehicle after January 1st of the previous year it will not need to be on your tax receipt. You are only taxed on the property you owned January 1st of each year.
