The Tax Process
Sales tax on boats is collected by the Wyoming dealer. If the boat is purchased from an individual or the dealer does not collect the sales tax, the County Treasurer’s Office can collect the sales or use tax due on the boat. With a purchase order, invoice, or bill of sale the Treasurer’s Office will be able to calculate the tax due, collect the payment, and issue a receipt showing sales tax paid.
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department requires proof that sales tax has been paid on a boat before issuing a boat registration.
For additional information about sales tax on boats, please contact the Treasurer’s Office at (307) 872-3720 or (307) 922-5402.
