Depending on where you live, some motorists may be required to pay a county vehicle excise tax or county wheel tax. A vehicle is assessed the county vehicle excise tax only when the county in which the vehicle is registered has adopted a county vehicle excise tax. The county vehicle excise tax rate may be either a flat rate or a percentage rate tax.
