#89 - Commercial Vehicles – WDT and HVUT Verification
April 27, 2009
All commercial vehicles with a gross vehicle weight greater than 26,000 pounds are subject to New Mexico’s weight distance tax (WDT). All commercial vehicles weighing 55,000 pounds or more are also subject to the federal Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT). Field offices are required to verify compliance with both WDT and HVUT requirements when registering these vehicles. This PQU replaces PQUs #18, 23 and 45.
