1/ Highway-user revenues consist primarily of motor-fuel taxes, shown in Table MF-1, and motor-vehicle and motor-carrier taxes shown in this table.

2/ Where the registration year is not more than one month removed from the calendar year, registration-year receipts are given. Where the registration year is more than one month removed, calendar-year receipts are given.

3/ Includes fees for light trucks as reported in Table MV-9.

4/ Special titling taxes imposed under general sales tax levies are not included.

5/ County or local officers in many States are allowed service charges for issuing registrations, operators' licenses, or for related services. Some of these charges are included with registration and other fees. The amounts shown in this column are estimates of service charges that are collected and retained by local officials and not reported elsewhere in this table.

6/ Numerous States impose taxes on the gross receipts of motor carriers in connection with general state sales taxes or taxes on all transportation companies or public utilities. This column includes only the proceeds of gross receipts taxes reported by the States as special taxes on motor carriers.

7/ In general, the proceeds of special weight or capacity taxes imposed at a flat rate per vehicle are included under special license fees and franchise taxes. Application or filing fees required for the issuance of certificates of convenience and necessity to common carriers, and corresponding permits to contract and other motor carriers, are included under certificate or permit fees.

8/ Registration fees now exclude license taxes.

9/ Property taxes formerly levied on motor vehicles have been replaced by "Vehicle License Fees" in California, and by "Motor Vehicle Excise Taxes" in Washington. Because of the origin of these taxes, the administrative officers of the two States do not consider them to be highway-user taxes. The amounts included with registration fees in this table are as follows: California, automobiles $1,364,872,023 buses $3,686,717, trucks $407,747,090, trailers $63,146,897, motorcycles $11,276,618.

10/ Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York and Oregon register automobiles for two-year periods, Virginia for optional one- or two-year periods, and Louisiana for four-year periods, all on a staggered monthly basis.

11/ The 2003 data not available; used 2001 data.
