Vehicles subject to a wheel tax

​Some municipalities or counties collect a wheel tax​ in addition to the regular registration fee. Check your renewal notice to confirm that the county and city, village or township where your vehicle is customarily kept is correct. If you recently changed your address, WisDOT records for the vehicle location will update automatically in most cases.

If you renew online, any wheel tax due will display on the itemized list of fees. If you believe a wheel tax charged is not due, cancel the transaction and contact WisDOT at the email address or telephone number below.

If you renew by mail or in person, indicate the correct information on the notice and submit it with the appropriate fee.

Any person who gives a false or fictitious location where a vehicle is customarily kept may be fined not more than $200 or imprisoned not more than six months or both (section 341.60, Wis. stats.).
