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 vehicle by the automobile factory. This can generally be found on your Wyoming Title; if you are calculating a renewal then 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 known 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%
6th year
and after
15%

Example Calculation


Therefore, a new vehicle having a factory cost of $20,000 could 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
(determined by weight)
Motorcycles $12.00
Commercial
$195.00 - $1,300.00
(determined by weight)
