Responsibilities of the Clerk's Office:

Renewal of vehicle tags which includes the wheel tax sticker. A drive-up window is available for convenience. The wheel tax sticker is used exclusively to retire the county school bond indebtedness ($40.00), add to the county highway fund ($7.50), and retire the bond indebtedness on the Marshall County Jail ($2.50).

The staff members title a vehicle and collect the sales tax when applicable and assign a tag at the time. Titles have been issued since 1999. The County receives a percentage of the fees for every title the office prints. This has brought new revenues into the county that normally the state would keep. It has also made it easier to replace your title and it does not take as long for other titles to be issued.
