If paying in person a paid receipt is given at the time your payment is made. If you pay by mail your receipt is mailed to you after we process your payment. If you pay by phone or online a receipt is mailed to you once we have received and processed your payment from the provider. Usually, this is within 5 days. When paying the last week of December please allow up to 10 days for your paid receipt due to the large amount of mail we have to process. The Missouri Department of Revenue can look up your paid personal property online at any License Bureau in the state of Missouri. A printed paid tax receipt is may not be necessary to get your vehicle license as long as you have paid at least 30 days prior to getting your license. If you need a copy of your paid receipt please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call our office at 417-745-6713.
