About

Motor Vehicles, Department of State
Businesses and individuals must pay a vehicle use tax when they register a passenger vehicle in New York State.

The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) collects this use tax for the City. Non-profit organizations, such as religious, charitable, or educational organizations do not need to pay the tax. Non-profits must apply for an exemption through the DMV.

Depending on weight, pick-up trucks may register as either commercial or personal vehicles. See the Information for Owners of Pick-up Trucks page for more information.
