Missouri residents could see higher personal property tax bills for vehicles

ST. LOUIS — Personal property tax bills are popping up in area mailboxes, and you might notice you owe more on your vehicle this year. St. Charles will begin sending tax bills on November 23.

In March, FOX2Now reported that in many cases the value of your car may have increased in 2021. St. Louis County appraiser Jake Zimmerman said that at the time, values ​​increased because that used cars were selling for higher prices.

The value of all cars is based on current NADA guide values. Value increases are rare but in line with national trends due to the economic impact of the pandemic.

In some places you can pay your bill online. Here are some of the links:

A reminder, property and estate tax bills must be postmarked by December 31st. Last year, several invoices were mailed before December 31, but only postmarked a few days later.

The St. Louis postmaster took responsibility for the late postmark, apologized, and offered to give the revenue collector an explanation. Unfortunately for Radinsky, state laws don’t provide a simple solution.

State Senator Jill Schupp introduced an amendment to House Bill 271 to help prevent people from being punished in these types of situations.
