Wyoming: Motor Vehicle Sales Tax Change

  • Jun 19, 2015 | Gail Cole

 Buying a new (old) car in Wyoming? In 2016, you'll have more time to register it and pay sales tax.

Under current Wyoming law, a vehicle must be registered with the state and Wyoming sales tax must be paid within forty-five day of the date of purchase or transfer of ownership.

Under Wyoming House Bill 115 (Enrolled Act 23), which takes effect January 1, 2016, new vehicle owners have sixty-five days from the date of purchase or transfer of ownership to register the vehicle and pay sales or use tax.

The legislation also extends the amount of time vehicle owners have to register and pay Wyoming sales or use tax on vehicles purchased in another state and brought to Wyoming for use or storage. Currently, vehicle owners have forty-five (45) days; effective January 1, 2016, vehicle owners will have sixty-five (65) days.
