TRUCK TAXES BY STATE CALENDER. YEAR 1974
This attempt to clarify the "highway-tax picture" includes, in addition to state taxes, a state-by-state breakdown of total Federal Highway Trust Fund collections paid by all highway users in each state as well as the portion of these taxes paid by trucks. The basic data covering motor vehicle registrations, taxes and highway expenditures contained in this publication are taken from the annual tables of the Federal Highway Administration. The data in this publication were designed primarily to fill the void in those states where detailed information on truck-tax payments could not be readily obtained. In the 18-years 1957-1974) since the enactment of the Highway bill, trucks paid 33.3 percent of the total user taxes collected by the states, and over $75.8 billion in combined state and federal highway-user taxes. In 1974, trucks which comprised 17.7 percent of total motor-vehicle registrations, paid 35.3 percent of all special motor vehicle taxes collected by the several states: Estimates indicate that trucks will pay over 2.4 billion in Federal Highway Trust Fund taxes in 1975 or about 45 percent of the total collections from hithway users.
