County & State Fees
Fees for commercial plates are broken into a County Fee and a State Fee. The County Fee is calculated the same way as a regular registration. The State Fee is calculated depending on the gross vehicle weight of the vehicle or combination using a weight table.
There are several discounts available for commercial registrations only. The discounts allow the owner of the vehicle to only pay a percentage of the total State Fee. Only one of the following discounts can be applied to a registration:
Vehicles operated 20,001-30,000 miles: 75% of the total State Fee
Vehicles operated 10,001-20,000 miles: 50% of the total State Fee
Vehicles operated 5,001-10,000 miles: 25% of the total State Fee
Vehicles operated 2,501-5,000 miles: 20% of the total State Fee
Vehicles operated 2,500 miles per year or less: 15% of the total State Fee
