HOW MUCH SALES TAX DO I PAY?

The amount of sales tax due depends on:

  1. The sales price of the vehicle, and
  2. The applicable sales tax rate.

The vehicle sales price is the cash price of the vehicle including any upcharges that increase the vehicle price. Taxable upcharges include accessories, document fees, transportation fees, anti-theft devices, etc.

The sales tax rate is always the rate charged in the purchaser's county of residence, as indicated by the address on the title.

f the purchase was made out of state, the tax rate will be determined by the purchaser's county residence. Click for more info on out of state purchases.

For example, if someone from Converse County (5%, up to 6% as of April 1, 2013) purchases a vehicle in Denver (7%), the purchaser would pay 5% if bought before April 1, 6% after April 1, 2013.

Important: Wyoming law requires that a bill of sale must be presented to pay sales tax when a vehicle is purchased from a dealer. When a vehicle is purchased from an individual, no bill of sale is required.
