This answer was rated:

Hi my husband owns a house in Schuyler county Missouri my name is XXXXX XXXXX it I have a vehicle I own solely his name is XXXXX XXXXX it he owns personal property taxes on his house and the motor vehicle department wont let me renew my car without a paid personal property tax receipt. Granted I probably owe on my car but all this time I thought they would send me a separate tax payment what do I do?
Thanks for asking your question! I'm sorry to hear about your tax issue and I'm going to try my best to help you understand or resolve it.

Thank you for your question. What you need to do in this situation is pay the personal property tax that is due on your car or make arrangements with the taxing authority to do so.

You are not liable for the property taxes on the house. Your husband is not responsible for the personal property taxes on the car. Your husband not paying his taxes will not impact your ability to register your vehicle.

You should have two separate tax bills for the house and the car. This is not only because you are two separate tax payers but because the house and the car are not connected to each other.

The best thing to do is to pay the property tax on your car, and then show the receipt for that. Once you do that, you will be able to register your car.
