Commercial license plates are issued to vehicles meeting the above criteria. For units with a maximum combination weight of over 55,000 pounds, a 2290
form from the IRS
must be presented to the Treasurer's Office.
Fees for commercial plates are broken into a county and state fee
. The county fee
is calculated in the same way as all other registrations. The state fee calculation
is based on the weight of the vehicle. For a pulling unit, the maximum combination weight is used, which includes the weight of the trailer and its heaviest load.
Several discounts are available for commercial registrations, allowing the owner to pay only a percentage of the state fee. Only one reduction can be applied to a registration.
Vehicles used primarily for agricultural operations, logging operations from the source to the mill, or in the servicing of well field operations can pay a discounted rate of 25% of the total state fee.
The table below lists the discounts for commercial vehicles driven less than 30,000 miles a year.
