Renewal of License Plates

Wisconsin law allows a town, village, city or county to collect an annual municipal or county vehicle registration fee (wheel tax) in addition to the regular annual registration fee paid for a vehicle. The fee applies to vehicles kept​ in the municipality or county with:

  • Automobile registration
  • Truck registration at 8,000 lbs. or less (except dual purpose farm) 

​This includes most special license plates with automobile or truck registration.* State law does not specify the amount of the wheel tax. However, the municipality or county must use all revenue from the wheel tax for transportation related purposes.

When you renew your License Plate for your vehicles, be sure to check that the municipality listed as to where your vehicle is kept, indicates the “Town of Middleton.”
