Robertson Cnty Wheel/Sales Tax Delayed Again


The proposed increases of the wheel and sales taxes have been delayed until the March meeting of the county commission due to legal restraints.

At least six months must pass before the sales tax can be placed on another referendum, Dennis Wade said in commission meeting on Monday. The sales tax was voted down when brought to referendum last November.

The wheel tax increase, which was deferred in the January commission meeting to be packaged with the sales tax, would add $30 to the cost of updating vehicle tags, bringing the annual cost to $109.25 per vehicle, County Clerk Susan Atchley said.
