Wheelage Tax

Registered vehicles in Wabasha County will be assessed a wheelage tax starting in 2015 after county board members voted 3-to-2 to establish the tax.

The tax will be $10 on each registered vehicle and the funds are to be used for road improvements in the county.
The Wabasha County Herald said with $24,000 registered vehicles in the county the tax will raise a projected $240,000 and help the county's road and bridge fund.

The legislature earlier gave the wheelage tax option to each county in the state.

Winona County Commissioners have refused to establish a local wheelage tax.

The Wabasha County tax will take effect this coming January First.
