International Fuel Tax Agreement or IFTA

Your IFTA license and decal expires on December 31, 2018.  Carriers who are compliant with IFTA must obtain a new 2018 IFTA Carrier License and a decal for each applicable vehicle.  Carriers do have until March 1, 2019, to display their new credentials.    Carriers who owe or have not filed previous 2018 returns will not be able to renew their license or obtain decals until their account has been cleared up.

Unified Carrier Registration or UCR

Motor carrier, motor private carrier, freight forwarder, broker and leasing companies operating interstate or internationally in the US must obtain an annual UCR registration.  The fee is based on the number of motor vehicles for carriers. While although registration typically expires December 31 of each year, the UCR has yet to set their rates for 2019. Hold off on paying this renewal until further notice. PSTC will update when rates are decided along with a deadline.

New York Highway Use Tax or HUT

New York requires qualified motor vehicles or trailers to register for HUT.  New York uses a three-year registration period.  The 23rd series starts for 2019.  Returning this series is the requirement to obtain and display a sticker.  For more information read our blog post here.  22nd series registration expires December 31, 2018.
