Missouri sales tax information

The Missouri (MO) state sales tax rate is currently 4.225%. Depending on local municipalities, the total tax rate can be as high as 10.1%.

Missouri allows all state and local sales taxes to be remitted together at the state level. Once a seller remits sales tax to the Department of Revenue, the department will then distribute the local sales taxes to the cities, counties, and districts.

Missouri charges what is called a Transaction Privilege Tax (TPT), considered a sales tax on all sellers for the privilege of engaging in business in the state of Missouri. So additional fees on a sale, such as administrative fees for a service such as auction fees, can be considered taxable.

Why can't I just use the ZIP code?

  • There are often multiple sales tax rates per ZIP code, county, and city.
  • ZIP codes often overlap, or become subsets of other ZIP codes, or represent no geographic region at all.
  • ZIP codes aren't stable. In any given year, the USPS makes numerous boundary changes to ZIP code areas.

For the most accurate sales tax rate, use an exact street address.
