Trucking Permits

IFTA Permit

The International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) is a base state fuel tax agreement. Any person based in a member jurisdiction operating a qualified motor vehicle(s) in two or more member jurisdictions is required to license under this agreement or purchase fuel trip permits for travel in member jurisdictions

Qualified Motor Vehicle – a motor vehicle used, designed or maintained for the transportation of persons or property and:

⦁ Having two axles and a gross vehicle weight or registered gross vehicle weight exceeding 26,000 pounds or 11,797 kilograms; or
⦁ Having three or more axles regardless of weight; or
⦁ Used in combination when the weight of such combination exceeds 26,000 pounds or 11,797 kilograms gross vehicle weight or registered gross vehicle weight. Qualified vehicles do not include recreational vehicles.

Farm vehicles, special mobile equipment and buses are subject to IFTA Licensing requirements if they meet the gross vehicle weight or axle criteria and cross state lines. Any motor carrier who operates one or more qualified motor vehicles in at least one other IFTA member jurisdiction other than their base state must apply for IFTA credentials or fuel trip permits must be obtained to travel through member jurisdictions according to the regulations of each member jurisdiction.
If a qualified motor vehicle does not participate in IFTA, then a temporary (fuel) trip permit must be purchased to travel outside of their base state.

Trucking PermitsOregon Permit

About 21,500 motor carriers pay the Oregon weight-mile tax, including 8,500 Oregon-based carriers and 13,000 out of- state carriers with trucks operating in Oregon. When they register a truck they pay a registration fee that is based on the truck’s highest combined weight for the year (weight of the truck plus maximum weight of the load it will haul). Their weight-mile tax is then based on the declared combined weight(s) established for each truck combination – the heaviest weight at which the motor carrier declares the combination will operate during a month or quarter tax reporting period. A check of 283,145 trucks registered in July 2010 showed eight of every ten (225,742 total) operate at just one declared combined weight (80,000 pounds for most). Only 20% of all trucks operate under more than one declared weight. Oregon first enacted a ton-mile tax on trucks in 1925 and replaced that with a weight mile tax in 1947. In 1990, it implemented the first axle-based weight-mile tax for trucks over 80,000 pounds. Over the years, weight-mile rates have been adjusted 14 times based on the results of updated cost responsibility calculations in Oregon Highway Cost Allocation Studies.

Today, Oregon is the only state that charges heavy trucks (over 26,000 pounds) a weight-mile tax and no diesel fuel tax. Three other states — Kentucky, New Mexico, New York — have a weight-mile tax that they charge certain heavy trucks, but also in conjunction with a diesel fuel tax and other truck fees.

Trucking PermitsKentucky Weight Distance Permit (KYU)

Kentucky’s Highway Use Tax (KYU) is a weight-distance tax, based on mileage traveled by motor vehicles through Kentucky. You need a KYU license if your vehicle travels through Kentucky and has a gross weight of 60,000 pounds or more. Once a KYU license is issued, quarterly reports must be filed.

A KYU number is proof that you have registered with Kentucky to pay a per mile tax. Highway use tax forms will be sent to you on a quarterly basis and must be completed and returned by the required due date. KYU numbers no longer need to be posted on the sides of your power unit since your USDOT# will be used as means of identifying the carrier and the status of the carriers KYU account.

Trucking PermitsNew Mexico WDT Permit

New Mexico’s Weight Distance Tax is a weight-distance tax, based on mileage traveled on New Mexico highways. You need a NM Weight Distance Tax ID Permit if your vehicle travels through New Mexico and has a gross weight of more than 26,000 pounds. Once a NM Weight Distance Tax ID Permit is issued, quarterly reports must be filed.

⦁ This tax is based on vehicle weight and miles traveled on New Mexico roads. Companies must register and apply each year for a New Mexico Weight Distance Tax Electronic Permit for each vehicle.

⦁ A vehicle titled in New Mexico that is subject to the weight-distance tax and traveling intrastate is issued a weight-distance plate.

⦁ A vehicle titled in New Mexico that is subject to the weight-distance tax and traveling interstate is issued an IRP plate.

⦁ Those subject to the weight-distance tax (WDT) must file a New Mexico weight-distance tax return on a quarterly basis, and pay the tax due to the MVD. You can file a weight distance tax return (single and bulk filing) online through the MVD Online Services.

Trucking Permits

New York HUT Permit

As a business owner, it’s important to understand your federal, state, and local tax requirements. This will help you file your taxes accurately and make payments on time. The business structure you choose when starting a business will determine what taxes you’ll pay and how you pay them. New York State imposes a highway use tax (HUT) on motor carriers operating certain motor vehicles on New York State public highways (excluding toll-paid portions of the New York State Thruway). The tax rate is based on the weight of the motor vehicle and the method that you choose to report the tax. Before operating a motor vehicle on the public highways of New York State you must obtain a certificate of registration and decal for each motor vehicle subject to the highway use tax. There are two types of registrations:

⦁ A HUT certificate of registration is required for any truck, tractor, or other self-propelled vehicle with a gross weight over 18,000 pounds. (If you elect to use the unloaded weight method to file your returns, a certificate is required for any truck with an unloaded weight over 8,000 pounds and any tractor with an unloaded weight over 4,000 pounds.)

⦁ An automotive fuel carrier (AFC) certificate of registration is required for any truck, trailer, or semi-trailer, or other attached device transporting automotive fuel. (The same gross weight and unloaded weight rules apply.)

Trucking PermitsIntrastate Authorities

What is intrastate authority?
When you haul freight within a single state’s borders, you are operating as a INTRA-state Motor Carrier and required to obtain intrastate Operating Authority. Each state has different rules and regulations concerning Intrastate transportation. Furthermore, the agencies that govern Intrastate transportation vary from state to state.
For those who have already applied for your authority, Logistics/TTS can expedite the paperwork by providing your Operating Authority permit the day it is granted by the FMCSA.
