Motor Vehicle Fee Increases:

Each city and county receives a distribution from the increased motor vehicle fees collected statewide.  These fees are state license fees and taxes on motor vehicles, trailers, motorcycles, mopeds, and motortricycles that have been increased by law since 1979.  The amount is distributed by follows:

10% counties

15% cities

75% state road fund

Cities receive thier distribution of the increased fees based on population.  The last federal decennial census is used for this calculation.

Counties receive their distribution of the increased fees based 50% on county road milage and 50% on rural land valuation.
