The Kentucky Weight Distance Tax Permit is abbreviated as the Kentucky KYU Permit. As stated in the previous section, all the commercial vehicles that travel through Kentucky, and those registered in Kentucky, weighing the gross vehicle weight of more than 60,000 lbs, are entitled to register for this permit and get a Kentucky KYU Number.
If you are a fleet owner, a single KYU license applies to all your vehicles. And you do not have to display your KYU Number on your vehicles, as its enforcement could be verified through your US DOT number. But in case you operate a leased vehicle, and the lessor pays KYU taxes and holds the KYU account, you need to display your KYU Number along with your DOT number.
For a quick KYU Registration, you should have the following list of documents and information handy:
- Active USDOT and FMCSA Permit
- Filed UCR
- Active IRP account with the base jurisdiction
- Active IFTA account with the base jurisdiction
