: Wyoming law requires that sales tax must be
paid on a vehicle within 65 days of the date of purchase. The 65 days
include weekends and holidays.
If the sales tax is not paid within 65 days, the following charges apply:
- a "civil fee" of 10% of the tax due or $25.00, whichever is higher;
- interest at 1% per month the payment is overdue, commencing on the 66th day.

|Sales Tax (5%)
