Taxable personal property consists of motor vehicles, trailers, mobile homes, watercraft, boat motors, aircraft, livestock, farm machinery and equipment, agricultural crops, and any other personal property not exempted by law. Taxation of business enterprises is not included here because its complexity is beyond the scope of this explanation.
Every person owning or holding taxable personal property in Missouri on the first day of January, including all such property purchased on that day, shall be liable for taxes thereon during the same calendar year. This includes the property of non-residents whose property is held in Missouri, but does not include the property of non-residents whose property is regularly kept in another state, but just happens to be in Missouri on the first of January.

The Assessor uses standard valuation manuals for all of the various types of personal property. Vehicles are the most widely owned form of taxable personal property, and for this the Assessor uses a rate book provided by the Missouri State Tax Commission. This rate book is used by all Missouri counties. For any questions concerning the valuation of your property, your point of contact is the Perry County Assessor's Office. The County Assessor is the official whose responsibility is to assess the value of all taxable personal property within the county.
Yes. Each year you are required to make a list, called an assessment list, of all of your taxable personal property and mail or deliver this list to the County Assessor's office in the county where you lived on the first day of January. This list is due no later than the first of March.
All taxable personal property shall be assessed in the county in which the owner resides on the first day of January with a few exceptions.

Personal property owned by an estate shall be assessed in the county in which the division of the circuit court has jurisdiction.
