New York issues memo on permit confusion

| 2/12/2016

New York has suspended online processing for out-of-state vehicles for New York state highway use tax permits. In a memo to IRP jurisdictions from the New York State International Registration Bureau in Albany, the IRB addressed the process and how it has been affected by the recent injunction obtained by OOIDA.

The memo was sent Friday, Feb. 12, and reads:

“The NYS International Registration Bureau (IRB) has been informed by the NYS Department of Taxation and Finance (DTF) of a recent Supreme Court Order which has enjoined NYS from charging fees for the Highway Use Tax (HUT) Certificate of Registration and HUT decal for out-of–state carriers. While the Order is being reviewed OSCAR HUT capabilities will be affected. Out of state carriers will be required to apply for HUT credentials through the mail.

“For more information please visit the Tax Departments website at For any further questions regarding HUT, please contact 518-457-5735.”
