FET resources

NTEA is a founding member of an industry group leading the charge to repeal the 12% Federal Excise Tax (FET) on heavy-duty trucks. Repealing FET would reduce the acquisition cost of new trucks currently subject to the tax by 12% and allow purchasers to more readily integrate cleaner and safer vehicles into their fleet. Additionally, repeal would clear the way to better alternative funding mechanisms for highway repair and maintenance. Learn more and support FET repeal.
