County Treasurer - Vehicle Licensing - Fees

Wyoming statutes dictate the calculation of all registration fees. Therefore, the fees are the same no matter what county a vehicle is registered in (unlike Sales Tax).

However, the county that collects the fees keeps and distributes the money to the taxing entities in their county. Therefore, residents are encouraged to register vehicles in the county where they reside.

Vehicle registration fees consist of 2 parts; a county fee and a state fee.

County Fee
The County Fee is a tax based on the factory price of the vehicle as listed on the Wyoming Title and is calculated using the following formula:

  Factory Cost
X Year of Service Rate
X 0.03

= County Fee

Factory Cost
This is not the blue book value, retail value, or the purchase price. The factory cost is the original cost placed on the vehicle by the automobile factory. This can generally be found on your Wyoming Title; if you are calculating a renewal, the factory cost can be found on your previous years Wyoming registration listed under: Fact Price.

Year of Service Rates
The year of service rate, also know as the valuation percentage, is determined by how many years the vehicle has been registered for use.

Service Rates are:

Service   Rate
1st Year   60%
2nd Year   50%
3rd Year   40%
4th Year   30%
5th Year   20%
6+ Years   15%

Example Calculation
Therefore, a new vehicle having a factory cost of $20,000 would have a county fee of $360:

  $20,000
X 60%
X 0.03

= $360.00

State Fee
The State Fee is a fee levied by the State of Wyoming and is remitted to the Wyoming Department of Transportation each month. The fee depends on the vehicle type, as follows:

Vehicle Type Fee
Passenger $15.00
Trucks & Trailers $2.00 - $60.00
Motorcycles $12.00
Commercial $195.00 - $1,300.00
