What is the KYU number?
The KYU number is a tax license issued for the Kentucky Weight Distance Tax. Any motor carrier 60,000 pounds or greater traveling Kentucky is subject to this tax. Right now the tax is computed at $0.0285 cents per mile.
How long does it take to get the KYU number?
Ace Licensing is an Authorized Service Provider for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. That means, there is no faster way to get your KYU issued. Typically, during state office hours, we will have your license back in 24-48 hours. This is a huge advantage when compared to the 7 to 14 business days it takes non authorized provider to submit the application.
What Do I Need First?
Before Kentucky issues the KYU number, they will check a few things to make sure your company is properly registered. First, your USDOT number must be listed as an "Interstate" carrier. Second, if you are for-hire, you must have an "Active" MC number. Finally, you must have a current UCR (Unified Carrier Registration) for your company. If you do not have the UCR on file for the current year, the filing is available on our site also.
Once I have the KYU number, what do I need to do?
Once you have the number issued, you will need to file your KYU quarterly taxes in a timely manner to keep your license in good standing. The quarterly reports are due the last day of the month following the end of the quarter. We do also offer the tax filing assistance too.
