Requirements to license a vehicle: Wyoming Title - proof of insurance on motorized vehicles - proof that the vehicle was registered in another state to you or proof that you paid sales tax. If this is a new purchase, you will be charged sales tax based on the rate in effect in your Wyoming place of residence. Sales tax must be paid within 65 days of purchase or be subject to penalty and interest on the tax amount.
Motor Vehicle county fees are based on the original MSRP (factory price) of the vehicle from the factory to the dealer: year, make, model and trim package. This gives the valuation which is then multiplied by 3% which gives the county fee. This fee is an ad valorem tax in lieu of property tax. The state fee is a flat fee of $30.00 for passenger vehicles. Trucks, trailers, motor home`s and campers state fee is based on weight.
Example: Brand new car factory price $35,000.00 x 60% = $21,000 x 3% = County fee $630.00. This fee is pro-rated downward for the first 6 years of the life of the vehicle till the formula would be $35,000.00 x 15% = $5250.00 x 3 % County fee $157.50. The % is as follows: 60% - 50% - 40% - 30% - 20% - 15%
