Local Option

Sales Tax and

Wheelage Tax


To meet the transportation budget gap and take care of high priority roads and bridges, the County at its May 2, 2017 meeting passed a resolution to use new revenue sources to address the budget shortfall and fund road repairs and construction projects over the next 20 years. Proceeds from a new half-percent local option sales tax, a $20 excise tax on vehicle purchases, and an increase in the wheelage tax from the current $10 per vehicle to $20 per vehicle will be used to fund specific transportation projects.
