    KY=Kentucky. Use to be KY TN OH OK NJ and several others all with a bingo plate on the front with others. Before IFTA you had to register in every state you ran in. Now you have 1 reg and a IFTA sticker.

    you're talking about the kyu number. if you are registered for 55,000 lbs. or higher then you have to have this number.it is for weight based mileage tax,it has nothing to do with ifta. you file a separate form every qtr. with your ky. mileage.simply another way to get more money from you.

    i can't answer that.yes, just another way to help releive truckers of their hard earned money.also you don't actually have to have the number displayed on the truck. when you go through the ky. scales they check your dot number to make sure everything is good.

    It can be done electronically now. Use to have to have a NY sticker tax number on the front of your truck but now it's done electronically and they just run your DOT number and get it off the computer.
