  • three or more axles; or
  • two axles and a gross vehicle vehicle weight (GVW) of 26,001 or more pounds; or
  • Is used in a combination that has a combined or registered gross vehicle weight of 26,001 or more

Kentucky Highway Use License (KYU)

This license is required for vehicles with a registered gross weight of 60,000 lbs. and above to report mileage tax. A surety bond is only required for carriers whose license has been cancelled for any reason. Qualified vehicles must file a quarterly tax report and pay appropriate taxes.

New Mexico Weight Permit

New Mexico imposes a weight-distance tax on owners, operators, and registrants of intra and interstate commercial vehicles with a declared gross vehicle weight in excess of 26,000 pounds. 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 Permit.

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.

New York Highway Use Tax (HUT)

The New York Highway Use Tax (HUT) is imposed on motor carriers operating certain motor vehicles on New York State public highways.  The tax is based on mileage traveled at a rate determined by the weight of the motor vehicle.  A HUT certificate of registration is required for any truck, tractor, or other self-propelled vehicle with a gross weight in excess of 18,000 pounds. As of January 1, 2013, you must affix a decal to each vehicle that’s required to have a certificate of registration.  For more information visit:


When traveling in Oregon or entering Oregon, carriers must obtain tax and registration credentials prior to operating. The only exception is if entering Oregon on I-5 @ OR/WA border and going directly to Portland Bridge Office at Jantzen Beach and purchasing credentials. Office is open M-F 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Carriers operating vehicles in Oregon with a combined weight 26,001 or more GVW must have either a valid temporary pass or an Oregon Weight Receipt and Tax Identifier for each power unit.  Companies are required to report Oregon road miles and pay the appropriate weight-mile tax either monthly or quarterly to the Oregon Department of Transportation. ODOT requires the posting of a bond, which may be dismissed after demonstration of timely reporting.

Temporary Passes:  Oregon DOT has implemented restrictions to temporary permits. Only 5  per vehicle or 35 per account within one year may be issued. Customers exceeding this limit will be required to establish an account.

Arkansas Ad Velorem Tax

The Tax Division of the Arkansas Public Service Commission determines Ad Valorem Assessments for property tax purposes on motor carriers.

Ad valorem simply means “according to worth.”  The term ad valorem can apply to any tax, fee, or duty that is charged as a percentage of the value of products, services, or property.
