Members of the Warren County Board of Education discussed the possibility of collecting wheel tax money from students who attend Warren County Schools, but reside outside the county.A county wheel tax of $30 is added to vehicle registrations and renewals and allots money toward public schools.Warren County Schools attorney Robin Phillips said, “Wheel tax is illegal for us to charge out-of county residents. It is unlawful for the governing body to charge a wheel tax for anyone who does not reside within the county. I think the motive perhaps is to prevent shopping between counties.
