FET resources

Federal Excise Tax (FET) issues can be complex. So NTEA provides the work truck industry with FET information on trucks, tractors and trailers. Our staff engineers stand ready to help members with technical and FET questions.

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.
