Iowa Farm Bureau wants the state to raise fuel taxes. Their theory is that everyone, including out of staters, should pay for the upkeep and building new of roads that will support the larger, heavier farm equipment and trucks that are being used today. For frigs sake! Maybe start taxing farm fuel just a bit, or how about a penny for every bushel of grain that goes across the scales. That corn has to get to town somehow. Man, think of how much road revenue would come in. I do most of my hauling around 6 am on Sunday mornings.;)

The grain hauled to town in trucks is being moved with on-road diesel (taxed). Fines for using off-road in the truck are astounding. And aren"t road fuel taxes apportioned to cover a trucker going across several states on one tank of fuel? Local roads are paid for by adjoining landowners and township residents.

Mileage had to be recorded in each state for the fuel tax as it is different in many states.It has been a while but it seemed like every quarter you sent back a special form paper with each states mileage.We were audited a couple times thru the years as to our log books and out of state mileage and both times they just told us to do a little better and that was it.Every time I received a violation we just usually paid it as we were in the wrong and sometimes they just warned us but that was seldom.

Intrastate CDL and Interstate CDL rules are different, including having to declare fuel purchased to verify locations and taxes paid.
It is wad of paperwork that is a pain unless you are a valid business and have an accounting department. Has nothing to do with safety, just $$$$$.

JMS/.MN I drove for a commerical carrier and we had a paper that we logged mileage every time we crossed a state line. We had to turn one in even if we stayed in our home state.

Lots of grain is still hauled by tractor and gravity flow wagons. Those are what tear roads up.
