Sales Tax Required for Your Vehicle
The DOR provides a sales tax calculator to estimate the tax you may have to pay when you purchase a vehicle. Sales tax is based on the sale price of the vehicle, net any trade-in or rebates that may apply. The sales tax rate that applies depends on where you reside, not where the vehicle is purchased. Use the sales tax calculator provided by the DOR on its website.
Sales tax/use rate charts are available from the DOR's website. Generate tax rate cards for a specific county or city in Missouri.
