Caution: Retailers who are not located in a county with a tax are still subject to the county tax and are required to collect and remit it, if they:

  • make taxable sales that are sourced to (i.e., take place in) a county with a tax; or
  • sell a motor vehicle, boat, recreational vehicle, or aircraft that will be customarily kept in a county which has adopted the county tax.

Note: Additional information on which county tax is imposed on sales and leases of motor vehicles, boats, recreational vehicles, aircraft, snowmobiles, trailers, semitrailers, all-terrain vehicles, utility vehicles, and off-highway motorcycles is provided in Part 18.D.(4) and (5) of Publication 201, Wisconsin Sales and Use Tax Information.

To determine the appropriate Wisconsin state and/or county sales and use tax rate that applies to a transaction, see the Sales Tax Rate Lookup.
