Truckers group urges tax suspension

Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA) officials are urging Congress to suspend the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) for one year as a means of providing economic relief to small-business truckers. “Truckers are still on the front lines, filling store shelves and supplying hospitals,” Todd Spencer, president of OOIDA, said. “Suspending the HVUT is a way that Congress could easily offer fast, direct relief to all motor carriers. And believe me, they need it, much more than just a ‘thank you.’”
