New York Highway Use Tax Violations

by Seth Azria on 8/13/2016

Carriers operating a commercial vehicle on New York public highways are subject to a New York Highway Use Tax Law.

This law requires that vehicles have a Highway Use Tax (HUT) decal indicating compliance with the law. Failing to have this decal creates a presumption that the vehicle is not in compliance with the law.

Violations of Section 1815 are punishable as follows:

  • First conviction: Fine between $100 and $250
  • Second and subsequent convictions: Fine between $250 and $500, or jail for up to 10 days

A driver may also be deemed to violate Section 1815 if the driver:

Operates a vehicle with a decal that been suspended or revoked or if the decal was issued for vehicle other than the one which it is affixed.

  • Operated a vehicle with a an actual gross weight or unloaded weight above that listed for the on the HUT certificate.
  • Fails to deliver to surrender the certificate of registration or decal.
  • Fails to keep required records of operation.

They were able to reduce 11 points down to nothing and I didn’t have to pay as much as I thought. I would definitely recommend them, as well as utilize their services again.
excellent results

Atty Azria explained my real situation and my real choices to me with regard to a moving violation charge in central new york. He then worked to reduce the charges to a no-point non-moving violation. I am extremely happy with these results and would very strongly recommend his firm to everyone.
