Missouri bill may alter trips to DMV

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KBSI) – A new bill that would change when and where sales taxes are paid on vehicle purchases has passed the Missouri House.

The bill would cut down trips to licensing offices, reduce the number of people driving around on long-expired temporary tags to avoid vehicle tax, and helping people afford to title their recently purchased cars.

Under current law, after purchase, a car dealer provides a temporary tag that’s good for 30 days. In those 30 days, the purchaser must go to a licensing office to pay the sales tax and get a title.
House bill 415, would require the dealer to collect that sales tax upfront by paying in full or roll it into a car loan.
