The Kentucky Highway Use Tax is a weight distance tax based on miles your vehicles travel through Kentucky. If you operate vehicles with a declared weight greater than or equal to 60,000 pounds that travel through Kentucky you must obtain a KYU number and file the Kentucky Weight Distance Tax quarterly. When you purchase the Road Tax Upgrade of My Fuel Tax you will have the capability of filing the Kentucky Weight Distance Tax (as well as New York, New Mexico, and Oregon) using the miles already entered for your IFTA report. And your report will be printed as an exact duplicate of the official State form. You just print it and sign it.
If you intend to file in Kentucky you would begin by entering your KYU# in the box provided at the bottom of the User Profiles Dialog of the Fuel Tax Program. The KYU # will then show on every Kentucky report that is printed for this User Profile.
Next click the Add/Edit Units button to open the Edit Units Dialog.
At the bottom of the Edit Units Dialog are 4 Tabs, 1 for each of the states requiring a Highway use or Weight Distance Tax and which are covered by the Road Tax Upgrade. For Kentucky simply check the box if this unit has a combined gross weight in excess of 59,999 lbs. A report is only required if the combined gross weight exceeds 59,999 lbs and a report will only include the Kentucky miles for this unit if this box is checked.
This is the Print Dialog for the Kentucky Weight Distance Tax Report. You will find it by clicking ‘All Reports’ in the gray menu bar of the Spinnaker Fuel Tax Welcome page. In this print dialog simply select a customer (the same as User Profile) and select the quarter for which you wish to run the report. Then click ‘Print’. The text box in the lower part of the dialog will list all units included in the report.
