Detailed Description of Weaver’s Motor Fuels Tax Minute, Episode 44

Kelly: Welcome to our Motor Fuels Tax Minute, where we talk all things motor fuel. Emilda today is going to talk to us about the heavy vehicle use tax.

Emilda: Thanks, Kelly. Yes, heavy vehicle use tax. Well, it is a tax on heavy vehicles. It’s for highway motor vehicles that have a taxable gross weight of 55,000 pounds, or more, that are subject to the tax. And so, a heavy vehicle will include something that is self-propelled and it’s designed to carry a load over the public highways. Whether or not it’s designated to perform another function, as long as it meets the requirement of a heavy vehicle on public roads, it’s required to remit a heavy vehicle use tax.

Some examples of that would be a vehicle that’s used on public highways like a truck or a truck tractor, sometimes buses, or maybe waste management companies that use those heavy vehicles on the road. And generally, those that don’t fall in this arena are going to be like your pickup trucks and other small vans and vehicles. And so, this is something that has to be filed annually. The heavy vehicle tax is usually filed for the periods of July 1st through June 30th of the following year. So, if you’re a company operating a heavy vehicle and you need assistance with these filings, reach out to us.

Leanne: Thanks, Emilda. Another episode with a lot of good information, and I think the second one in a row where we’ve gone outside of what people traditionally think about us for, which is fuel taxes, and, you know, we can help our clients in a number of different ways and the other taxes that dovetail nicely within the fuel industry.

That was this week’s Motor Fuels Tax Minute. Join us next time. Thank you.
