July 31st Quarterly Filing Deadlines

Are you ready, Truckers? Just four days from today is the deadline for FOUR quarterly tax filings! All you interstate truckers already know that the second quarter IFTA is due, but is there something else you may need to file? Find out which states have additional tax requirements below:

New York Highway Use Tax

  • A tax based on vehicle weight and distance traveled on public highways, it excludes miles traveled on
    toll-paid portions of the N.Y. State Thruway.
  • This quarterly filing is for vehicles with a gross weight of more than 18,000 pounds.
  • An unloaded truck/tractor weighing more than 8,000 or 4,000 lbs respectively must also file. 
  • If you travel through N.Y. only occasionally, you may obtain a Trip Permit in lieu of annual registry and filing of NY HUT. TSNAmerica can obtain this permit for you!
  • No more than 10 trip permits may be used per year.
