KENTUCKY KYU NUMBER
A KYU number is proof that you have registered with Kentucky to pay a per mile tax.
Highway use tax forms will be sent to you on a quarterly basis and must be completed and
returned by the required due date. KYU numbers no longer need to be posted on the sides of
your power unit since your USDOT# will be used as means of identifying the carrier and
the status of the carriers KYU account
All commercial motor vehicles with a gross weight of 60,000 pounds or more must secure
a KYU number before operating on Kentucky highways.
All commercial carriers with a gross vehicle weight of 26,001 lbs or greater must obtain a temporary or annual permit to travel into or through Oregon. Unlike the rest of the US or Canada, Oregon does not belong to the International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA Program). You will not be charged for fuel tax; however, you must obtain a proper tax permit before you enter this state. Heavy fines are imposed on carriers entering into Oregon without the proper credentials.
We recommend our clients obtain temporary permits even if only
traveling into Oregon occasionally. You are allowed up to 5 a year, however If your operation takes you to
Oregon on a frequent basis, we recommend you be permitted there and
obtain annual credentials.
Oregon requires all new entrants to become bonded
before permanent credentials are issued. Bonds may be placed by a Surety
Company or posted with cash. The size of you fleet will determine the
amount of the bond required. For example, the bond requirement to open
an account is generally $2,000.00 for carriers with 1 to 3 power units that travel to Oregon.
If you choose to obtain annual credentials, you are required to
obtain annual credentials, file a monthly mileage tax report and pay all
tax due. This is mandatory for the first year. If all monthly reports
are filed and paid timely, Oregon usually allows you to move this
reporting requirement to a quarterly basis.
