Assessments are based on where you lived/what you owned January 1.

If You Moved From Another County:

If you have moved within Missouri, fill out this Change of Address form so the Clay County Assessor’s Office is aware you have moved in. You may also contact us via phone (see below). Within 30 days of your move, you need to personally come into the Assessor’s office and add your name and property to the tax rolls.  This must be done in person.  Once you are added, you will automatically receive an assessment list from Clay County each year.

When going to the DMV, use your Personal Property Tax receipt from your previous county of residence.

If You Moved From Another State:

If you moved into Missouri from another state, fill out this Change of Address form so the Clay County Assessor’s Office is aware you have moved in. You may also contact us via phone (see below). Within 30 days of your move, you need to personally come into the Assessor’s office and add your name and property to the tax rolls. This must be done in person. Once you are added, you will automatically receive an assessment list from Clay County each year.

Bring your out-of-state title, application for title, or registration to the Clay County Administrative Building (or the Annex) to obtain a tax waiver. The Assessment Department needs your Clay County address, phone number and Social Security Number.

For the DMV: proof of insurance, a Missouri State Inspection Certificate, a tax waiver from the Clay County Assessor’s office, and money/check or debit/credit card, to obtain Missouri plates (you have 30 days to do so).
