The Wheel Tax brings in a lot of money to the county and that save us property owners from having to foot the bill for all the taxes, whereas those who don't own property tax, will pay some taxes with the wheel tax. Of course we all pay taxes on groceries, gas, and stuff like that, but I see a lot of Hawkins County People that don't bother to buy a wheel tax. It's legal to buy your vehicle out of town and it's legal to tag it out of town, that first time, however, the law is that one must purchase a wheel tax in the county they reside in and there is no waiting period, it must be done before the car is legally tagged.
If everyone would call the sheriff and give him the name and tag numbers of those that you know driving without a wheel tax, maybe he can do something about it. We are loosing a lot of money by those not buying a wheel tax when they buy or renew their tags out of the county. Then you and I have to make that up in property tax. The Sheriff's number is listed but this post will not allow me to post it.

Nobody enforces the wheel tax. When was the last time you read that someone had been charged with a wheel tax violation. People can park right in the sheriff's parking lot and have out of county taxes, living righ here, but they go un-noticed. I don't think the officers really care.

I know it's a small thing the police have to do, but the money it could generate would be pretty large. I get behind at least 2/3 folks daily going to and from work driving on expired tags. They need to sit up road blocks monthly and ticket these folks that have not bought tags. I walk past a new truck daily that does not have a new sticker. This makes me angry, because I buy one in the month that mine are due. What's up?
