What is a KYU Permit?
A KYU number is a (tax) license issued for the Kentucky Weight Distance Tax. Any motor carrier over 59,999 lbs. traveling through the State of Kentucky more than (2) times per year must obtain a KYU Permit. This permit does not need to be renewed annually; however, any changes to your vehicle fleet must be updated on the permit. Failure to update your vehicles will affect your quarterly taxes in Kentucky.
Who needs this?
Any owner operator or company driving a commercial vehicle for hire across state lines into Kentucky must apply for and receive a permit.
