A wheel tax is a device used by some municipalities to allow them to tax people that can't vote for them. Some cities really get brave and throw a city income tax in on top, kind of adding insult to injury. Whole plan is you can tax the bejeesus out of folks that can't vote for you and keep your cushy elected position. It's a form of taxation without representation.

Of course our ancestors that were around in 1776 are turning over in their graves.

The theory that we need the Electoral College because people are idiots is also looking pretty wise.

Some municipalities have a "wheel tax" which is nothing more than an additional tax collected by the City, village or county on vehicles registered in their jurisdiction. When we lived in Tennessee it was $5 that was collected when we renewed of tags. In Illinois we had to go to the City Hall and pay them IRRC $15 or $20 to get a decal to put on our windshield. Some municipalities really liked that because it allowed them to make parks and beaches resident parking only an charge non-residents to use the facility.

A wheel tax is a method of taxation commonly used in the United States by cities and counties. The problem that a wheel tax attempts to solve is that many people come into a community from outside to work - using the community's roads, water, sewer, and so forth, but pay no taxes into the community as a result of living outside of the municipality. The tax is charged to motorists based upon the number of wheels their vehicles have, often collected at the time of vehicle registration renewals.

Depends entirely and completely on the local taxing authority. Some places yes and some no. Contact the entity directly would be the only way to know.

We were driving down the street going back to the shop after lunch one day, when a city cop literally jumped out in front of us.(almost got hit) He demanded to know where the wheel tax decal was. My buddy told him to look at the license plate, then gunned to old Chevy down the street. We were in the state in Missouri, and the car had Illinois plates on it. Funny city cop, standing in the street as we drove off.
