For example, within the last year the Milwaukee County Board passed a wheel tax of $30. That means that a car owner in Milwaukee County will pay:
$75 in annual registration to the State of Wisconsin
$30 in wheel tax to Milwaukee County
Milwaukee Co. car owners will pay 40% more than most Wisconsin residents
After the Milwaukee County Board passed the $30 wheel tax, they also called for an advisory referendum on the April 2017 ballot for an increase to a $60 wheel tax.
That referendum was overwhelmingly opposed by 72% of the voters.
