The Oregon Highway Use Tax Bond is required by the State of Oregon Department of Transportation. Executed under ORS Chapter 825, the bond assures payment of fees, taxes, interest and penalties imposed upon a carrier. The bond states that the bondholder shall unconditional promise to pay the sums due now and those to become due.
Commercial carriers, operating vehicles on public roads, and weighing over 26,000 pounds must report and pay highway use taxes. The Department of Transportation requires carriers to file a bond as a guarantee of payment.
After your account is set up with the Department of Transportation, a letter will be sent stating the required bond amount. A company licensed in the State of Oregon must be used to issue the bond.
