Wisconsin law allows a town, village, city or county to collect an annual municipal or county vehicle registration fee (wheel tax) in addition to the regular annual registration fee paid for a vehicle. The fee applies to vehicles kept​ in the municipality or county with:

  • Automobile registration

  • Truck registration at 8,000 lbs. or less (except dual purpose farm) 

​This includes most special license plates with automobile or truck registration. The municipality or county must use all revenue from the wheel tax for transportation related purposes.

Village Fee = $10.00      Effective: 9/1/2016

The fee should only be applied to vehicle registration kept in the

Village of Tigerton. View the sample renewal to the right to make
