Council vote determines wheel tax for Kosciusko County will not increase

Kosciusko County Council meeting March 8 (Carli Luca / News Now Warsaw)

The Kosciusko County Council will not be raising the wheel tax.

New rules from the state allow wheel taxes to be doubled. That would mean a $50 tax for vehicles and and $80 tax for trailers.

The consensus of the council is that they’re OK with the current wheel tax amounts, though some brought up concerns that the trailer tax was too high and potentially unfair for those with lighter trailers.

The motion to keep the wheel tax the same was passed on a unanimous vote, with one council member abstaining.
