New York Highway Use Tax Violations

by Seth Azria on 8/16/2016

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.

After thinking this was a lost cause, my insurance could've gone up and my license been revoked for a speeding ticket and unlicensed operator ticket. Mr. Ralph Habib was able to successfully reduce both charges. Anyone wondering if you should fight a ticket, do so! You have a higher possibility of reducing the charge and pay less by being represented than just paying the tickets and seeing your insurance go up! Highly recommend Mr. Ralph Habib.

Perfect

As mentioned in many of the other reviews. Seth and Monica spelled out what should happen and it did. Ticket for my daughter from our of state was reduced to nonmoving violation. She was visiting colleges in NY, as she only has her permit a moving violation would have resulted in, a loss of her license for 3 months, driving school, and fines etc... 
I had no referral, just read the reviews and crossed my fingers. The price was affordable, they were very responsive, I could not be happier. Wished I had used him a couple of years ago when I got a ticket in NYC that I made the very expensive mistake of trying to defend myself...

You just need to make one phone call! They would take care of everything.

The results one hopes for.

I hired Azria and Bruffett PLLC to contest my NY ticket, Mr. Ralph Habib was the attorney that represented me. The Firm is professional and pleasant to deal with, Mr. Habib achieved the result I was hoping for - wonderful.

Ticket resolution

Mr. Seth Azria handled my case competently and efficiently. I did not have to appear in court, which made the entire process really painless. He was successful in negotiating a reduction of a speeding ticket to a no-point non-moving violation, for which I am truly grateful. Even though I had a very good record prior to the event, that ticket would have impacted my finances quite negatively. Thanks to Mr. Azria this did not happen.
