 Message from the Collector of Revenue

Collector of Revenue, Michelle D. McBride

Thank you for visiting our website! 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, taxpayers are strongly encouraged to pay using contactless methods:  online, over the phone (1-855-227-7840), by mail or by putting payment in the drive-thru drop box in front of the County Administration Building at 201 N Second Street in St Charles.  To avoid traffic, use of the drop box outside after office hours is also strongly encouraged.

      To pay or research accounts/bills, click on a search button at the right

Reminder:  Payment cart is disabled the first 3 to 5 business for statutory late payment interest and penalty can be updated

We still accept payments at the Collector's Windows in the County Administration Building during those days.

 Annual Billing Update

2020 Tax Bills:

  • The 2020 Tax Bills are online and have been mailed
  • If you recently moved and have a forwarding order on file with the Post Office, the bill should be forwarded to you
  • Payments will be processed in the order received
  • Per Section 52.240(1) Revised Statutes of Missouri, failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve the taxpayer from any liability imposed by law, including the duty to pay 2020 tax (without penalty and interest) on or before Dec 31st, 2020.

 Paying Your Bill

Paying your tax bill:

  • The Online Payment Transaction Receipt is not sufficient for license plate renewal.  The official Paid Personal Property Tax Receipt needed for license renewal will be mailed from the Collector's Office.  Please allow 5 business days for mail time and for updating of the state database.
  • Reminder: Partial Payments are accepted on existing bills.  Accounts must be paid in full to get the Personal Property Tax Receipt needed for Vehicle Registration Renewals.  All 2019 and prior Real Estate taxes must be paid in full to prevent their offering in the 2021 Tax Certificate Sale. 
  • When funds submitted exceed the amount due on an account, a credit is typically placed on the record toward future taxes.  A written request (by mail or email) from the party making the payment and containing current contact information is required for the release of funds. Duplicate Payments, are typically rejected and returned.  


Late payment interest and penalty are due on all tax payments made after January 1st of the year for which tax is assessed in accordance with State Law (Sections 52.290, 139.100, 140.100 RSMo).  The late payment interest and penalty is calculated based on the date of payment receipt or on the USPS postmark of the payment envelope.  The late payment interest and penalty increase on the first of each month.

The Personal Property bills shown on this site only display the first asset from a bill. The listing of assets on a paper bill should include everything owned on January 1st of the tax year (Section 137.115 RSMo). If a zero-dollar-due or no bill is showing, it could be because the Assessor did not receive a completed  Personal Property Assessment Form for the account.

This site will cease to accept payments at 12:01am on the 1st of each month.  It re-opens for payments around the third business day of the month.  This is to allow sufficient time for updating to the current amount due.
