Highway User Taxes

Record #:
The automobile was in its infancy in the state in 1909 when the General Assembly passed a law levying a registration tax on motor vehicles. That was the beginning of highway user taxes in the state. Today this program brings in $400 million a year, and every person, business, or corporation owning or operating a motor vehicle in the state contributes to it. This article presents information on what these taxes were, are, and what they could become.
