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.

I was very satisfied having them represent me on a speeding ticket. The process was seamless and very convenient. I highly recommend them and will not consider anyone else to represent me if I should ever land in any sticky situations again. They fight tirelessly for you and make it easy for you. They are great.

Would recommend to anyone

Seth Azria was recommended to me by a friend. I can't say enough about how well I was treated, his responsiveness, and how my case was handled. My first call to him was on 12/22/14 and we met the same day. My first and last date in court was 1/15/15. The outcome was better than I ever expected it could be and would recommend him to anyone.

Extremely satisfied

I have hired the Azria law firm twice to represent my daughter, once for speeding and the other was an accident. Both times I was extremely pleased with the outcome, in both cases they were dropped to no pointers. Everything was handled through e-mail, which was very convenient and in both cases were taken care of from start to finish within a month. I would recomend them to anyone. Thank you again for all of your help.

Ralph and his very capable staff brought would could have been a disastrous speeding ticket-and-point incident down to a parking violation with no points. From start to finish, his office handled everything and came through for me. I hope I don't need him again -- but if I do, I will hire him without hesitation!

Great Lawyer and Great Team

I unfortunately got 2 tickets at 2 different counties in the upper NY state after my flight was cancelled due to snow storm in the Winter. Ralph and his team helped me out with reduced charges and fines after a few months. Ralph is an expert on traffic tickets. He answered my questions and proposed the defense strategies in the phone. His team even worked in the holiday to evaluate my cases. They followed up at every stages professionally and responded to my questions promptly.

According to my personal experience, I highly recommend Ralph if you have any traffic tickets in the NY state.
