Residents of New York City and several counties in New York must pay a vehicle use tax when they register a commercial vehicle or renew a commercial vehicle registration. The DMV collects the taxes for the city and the counties. Read the table below to determine if you must pay a vehicle use tax. If you have questions about these taxes, ask the city or county where you reside or have a business.

If you reside outside New York City and you are exempt from the vehicle use tax in the county where you reside or have a business, complete form UT-11C. If you reside in New York City and you are exempt from the NYC vehicle use tax, get form UT-11 from a local DMV office or a DMV Call Center.
