I am a new Missouri resident. How do I title and license my motor vehicle in Missouri?
You have 30 days from the date of becoming a Missouri resident to title your vehicle. Please click here for complete instructions, including the necessary links.
How much tax do I pay when I buy a vehicle?
You must pay the state sales tax AND any local taxes of the city or county where you live (not where you purchased the vehicle).The state sales tax rate is 4.225 percent and is based on the net purchase price of your vehicle (price after rebates and trade-ins). Use the tax calculator to estimate the amount of tax you will pay when you title and register your new vehicle. If you bought your vehicle out-of-state and paid taxes on the vehicle to that state, that tax will be credited toward the amount of tax due in Missouri. You must provide proof of the amount of tax you paid in the other state. If the amount of tax paid in the other state is less than the amount owed in Missouri, you will be assessed the difference. If the vehicle was titled in your name in another state for more than 90 days, no Missouri sales tax will be assessed.
How do I apply for disabled license plates?
In addition to any other standard registration requirements, you will need to submit the Form 1776.
- A Physician's Statement for Disabled License Plates/Placard (Form 1776) from your licensed physician, chiropractor, podiatrist, advanced practice registered nurse, or optometrist stating that you qualify for disabled person plates (or a Statement of Business Need, if the applicant is a not-for-profit group, organization, or entity); or
- A statement signed by the vehicle owner and the disabled person (if the vehicle owner is not the disabled person) indicating vehicle is operated 50% of the time by a disabled person.
NOTE: Renewal applicants or new applicants who are already disabled placard holders and 75 years old or older are exempt from the physician’s statement requirement but must submit proof of their age one time.
