Editorial - Wheelage tax is painful but necessary

Email News Alerts

No one likes having to pay another tax. Things are hard enough out there.

But Douglas County's decision to enact a $10 wheelage tax that will be added on to license tab fees is a good one.


The money is needed to fix local roads and bridges that have been neglected for too long. Locally, the tax is estimated to bring in about $360,000 next year and will stay right here in Douglas County.
