Trucking permits are required to collect taxes from interstate truckers for fuel and miles operated over the highways of the United States. Each state can have a different tax rate on the fuel purchased and miles driven.
Any truck over 26,001 lbs or in combination over 26,001 lbs must be permitted when traveling across state lines. Truckers can choose to get temporary permits or order annual permits. Annual fuel permits expire Dec. 31 of each year and temporary permits are typically good for 3 to 10 days. Truckers must also have license tags or temporary permits that allow you to cross state lines. Truck license Tags are valid for different durations based on the state of issue.
