    Before you bought the truck, you did do a dyno and blowby and all the other stuff you need to do?


    To answer your question, I think ny has rolling stock exemption which you will need either a lease contract with a carrier or your own authority.

    If you are leased to a carrier or have your own numbers you do not pay sales tax on a truck

    No matter what, I’m sure NY has max tax on everything possible.
