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 is based on mileage traveled on NYS public highways and is computed at a rate determined by the weight of the motor vehicle and the method that you choose to report the tax.

 

Vehicle registration requirements

You must obtain a certificate of registration for each vehicle subject to HUT. There are two types:

A HUT certificate of registration is required for any truck, tractor, or other self-propelled vehicle with a gross weight over 18,000 pounds. (lf 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 semitrailer transporting automotive fuel. (The same gross weight and unloaded weight rules apply.)

 

Decals

 

As of January 1 , 2013, you must affix a decal to each vehicle that's required to have a certificate of registration.
