Wyoming Will Now Be Charging Special EV Tax

Wyoming Will Now Be Charging Special EV Tax

The idea here is that the annual fee is a means of paying for road and infrastructure upkeep (read: road tax). Of course, one could say that the new tax is really just a means of increasing state revenue, and that other tax sources (vehicle registration fees, vehicle purchase taxes, etc) could cover the cost of basic road maintenance in urban areas. (Rural road upkeep is an entirely different issue to my mind — many will simply have to be reverted to gravel over the coming years, imo.) It should also be noted here that most fuel taxes aren’t used for road upkeep, but rather for highway construction projects and the like.
