Update Sunday, March 22, 2020
Excelsior Springs is not on this list, and they did not answer they phone (which they usually do).
- Gladstone, Plattsburg, and Richmond are closed through March 31.
- Liberty and Platte City are closed through April 5.
- Blue Springs and Kansas City are limiting hours.
- Clinton, Lee’s Summit, and North Kansas City are limiting the number of customers they will take at one time.
For now, the office of Collector is issuing waivers and doing what we can to update tax bills for those trying to get in to these offices before they close. We recommend following the guidelines and staying home until things return to normal. Please note that these circumstances do not allow for interest and penalties to be waived for existing late bills.
Extended expirations for license and vehicle registrations:
From the Governor’s Press Release: To alleviate public congestion in local license offices, DOR has implemented automatic extensions for expiring driver licenses and motor vehicle registrations. These extensions are effective immediately:
- Vehicle owners with registrations or license plates expiring in March and April have been granted an automatic two-month extension. Owners will be able to continue operating their vehicles on Missouri roadways without penalty until they can apply for renewal.
- The time frame in which a vehicle safety and emission inspection is valid for March and April license plate expirations has also been extended an additional 60 days. Applicants for title will not be assessed a late title penalty when visiting a license office, effective immediately; this waiver will continue through April 30, 2020.
Valid Missouri driver licenses, nondriver licenses and noncommercial instruction permits with original expiration dates of March 1, 2020, through April 30, 2020, have been granted an automatic 60-day extension:
The approved extension does not waive the mandatory retesting requirement for persons who have allowed their license to expire for more than 184 days. Also, individuals who were provided notice to complete additional testing as part of a medical review program requirement may be granted an additional 60 days to comply with such requirements.
