New Connecticut Highway Use Fee

  • New Connecticut Highway Use Fee


    If you have tractor trailers in your fleet that travel through the State of Connecticut, this applies to you.


    Beginning January 1, 2023, a new Highway Use Fee will be imposed on certain carriers for the privilege of operating, or causing to be operated, certain heavy, multi-unit motor vehicles on any highway (i.e., public road) in the state of Connecticut.

    This will apply to tractor trailers (commercial combination vehicles) with a GVW of 26,000 lbs. and over. Straight trucks do not apply.

    The Highway Use Fee is calculated based on a vehicle’s weight and number of miles driven in the state. The fee applies to calendar months beginning on or after January 1, 2023.

    Carriers will be required to register with DRS for the Highway Use Fee by January 1, 2023. After registering, a Highway Use Fee Permit will be available in myconneCT (DRS’ online filing and paying portal).

    TANY will be holding a free webinar on December 19th to discuss this in further detail and answer any questions you may have
