    Did anyone else notice that effective October 1st, auto/truck title fees here in Wisconsin increased from $64 to $169.50? Yep, that’s right, It will cost you $169.50 to get a title for your new or used car. And, this is just the title fee and doesn’t include the annual Registration Fee or the new Wheel Tax.

    That amount of increase is ridiculous. They keep using the excuse that ‘fees in Wisconsin are lower than other states’, so what. We pay too many taxes up-front and hidden in this State. It is a tax hell.

    And the Madison Mayor is proposing a $40 per vehicle fee starting in January. So the annual registration fee in Madison would be:
    State registration fee – $85
    County fee – $28
    City fee – $40
    Total – $153

    I would rather see more money put toward public safety. That is one reason Chief Koval retired. The number of shots fired incidents seem to be rising rapidly.

    The state just got a huge jump in the initial registration/titling fee from $64 to $169.50, a whooping $100 increase! Dane County wheel tax is $28. The city of Madison fee would be another $40. Where in the hell is this money going, and why do we allow politicians to do this to us, the hard working blue collar, contributing members of society?

    I, too, would feel much better if some of this new money was being spent on public safety (police, fire, emergency services) instead of special interest groups such as high speed rail, office of immigration assistance, bilingual interpreters, multiple mayors with nothing to do, lieutenant governors who have nothing to do, etc.
