Can I prepay for more than a year of license tags in WI?

Dumb question of the day the wisdot DMV hasnít answered but in most states you can pay ahead for license and registration, in some cases up to 5 years ahead.

I have noticed Pickups with 2021 license plates so I am curious, can I pay ahead?

Iím positive I can pay ahead for the next year any time before they expire but what about 2 years or more?

With all the registration doubling or more coming in 2 months I plan to prepay at least for the 2020 sticker but thus far none of the forms appear to allow paying for multiple years (they must figure why would you?)
But yet I find no evidence disallowing you from prepayment.

Any ideas?

Any time I try to ask a question at the local DMV ,
Iím told no even if thatís the wrong answer so I loath the direct approach,
I could try the 9-2 hotline at the state level but havenít invested time during work to ask yet.

I also plan on ďmoving ď my home address to my alternate little weekday apartment since it appears I save hundreds of dollars doing so, I loath any extra fees involved and insurance BS so I havenít done that yet either.

Not sure if anyone has gotten straight answers on this

Are you becoming a tax refugee?
Here in NM I always get 2 year tags.
I say even if I sell or stop driving the vehicle (which has never happened) it's worth it just for the chance to not have to deal with the dmv as much.
You may have to go there and ask. Just bring extra money.
It may be so rarely asked for its not normally on the forms.
