What is the highway use tax?

 

The highway use tax (HUT) is imposed on motor carriers operating 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 New York State 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.

 

In general, the gross weight method is used to compute your tax and determine your registration requirements. However, you may elect to use the unloaded weight method to compute your tax and determine your registration requirements. You must use the same method for all your motor vehicles.

 

What vehicles are subject to the highway use tax?

 

The following motor vehicles are subject to tax depending on whether the gross weight method or unloaded weight method is used. Any truck, tractor, or other self-propelled vehicle with a gross weight of more than 18,000 pounds.

 

Gross weight method

Gross weight means the unloaded weight of the truck, tractor, or other self-propelled vehicle plus the unloaded weight of the heaviest trailer, semitrailer, dolly, or other device to be drawn by that motor vehicle plus the maximum load to be carried or drawn by the motor vehicle. The weight of the driver and a helper is not included. The gross weight of a tow truck does not include the weight of any vehicle that is being towed partly or wholly upon the towed vehicle’s own wheels. However, the gross weight of a flatbed tow truck must include the weight of the heaviest vehicle being transported on the bed of the truck.
