Pennsylvania’s Revenue Department is reminding truck operators that Dec. 31 is the deadline to apply for 2005 Motor Carriers Road Tax/IFTA decals. Operators who apply for the $5-decal set by Dec. 31st – one per truck is needed – are then granted a 60-day grace period, to Mar. 1, to display the decals on their trucks.
Motor vehicles that must buy the fuel tax stickers include: two-axle trucks having a gross or registered gross weight over 26,000 lb.; three-axle trucks regardless of weight; and combinations greater than 26,000 lb., unless exempted by law.
Trucks that operate solely in Pennsylvania need PA non-IFTA decals, while truckers that operate both inside and outside the state must display IFTA decals, the department said.
Truck operators can download an application for the decals, IFTA-200A, from the Department's Web site at www.revenue.state.pa.us/ or contact the Bureau of Motor Fuel Taxes at 1-800-482-4382.
