United States : MARATHON Co sanctioned creation of $25 vehicle registration fee.

Marathon County's Board of Supervisors has given nod to the creation of a $25 vehicle registration fee.

The fee, expected to start on December 1st, would be added to the license plate renewals at the DMV for all vehicles registered in Marathon County. There is a sunset clause for the fee to expire after December 1st, 2017, but the county board can revisit that if they wish.

The fee would produce just under $3 million in new revenue, and according to Corporation Counsel for Marathon County, Scott Corbett, that money has to stay with the nation since state law does not expressly give permission to use it anywhere else.

Corbett said, "The statute doesn't say anything about taxing jurisdictions sharing revenue with each other from this registration fee... Marathon County does not have the authority to provide funding to other municipalities by virtue of this fee."
