As we move into January we expect this to fluctuate some lanes hauling through the state if Connecticut due to the new tax that many will encounter.
Will there be a hefty fee if commercial vehicles do not follow this new Highway Use Tax? The answer is; yes! If you are knowing divert in occupying the permit, you will be fined $1000. Currently the exception is a vehicle carrying farm milk or dairy product from a farm that has the proper license.
