The State of New York is reminding carriers that the Series 20 Highway Use Tax (HUT) and Automotive Fuel Carrier (AFC) registrations will expire on December 31, 2012. Carriers who operate in the State of New York must obtain new series 21 credentials for January 1, 2013.
Each series runs for three years, the new series begins January 1, 2013. Carriers who obtain new unit credencials after October 1, 2012 will automatacially have series 21 stickers and permits.
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
Like past years the cost for your credential will be $15 per unit, returning this series will be the requirement to obtain a decal for an additional cost of $4 per unit. This brings the total cost of renewing or obtaining TMT’s to $19 per unit.
Decals must be securely and conspicuously affixed to the motor vehicle that it was issued to as follows:
• on a truck, tractor, or other self-propelled vehicle, place on the body of the motor vehicle as near as possible to the front registration plate;
• on a trailer or other non-self-propelled vehicle that is used to transport automotive fuel, place on the body of the motor vehicle as near as possible to the rear registration plate.
