The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance recently issued a notice about fraudulent HUT renewal emails; we've re-published that notice below for our customers' information:
Please be aware of potentially fraudulent, unapproved service bureaus attempting to collect data and payments for HUT registration.

How to safely renew
Beginning October 1, 2021, you can renew your Highway Use Tax (HUT) and Automotive Fuel Carrier (AFC) Certificates of Registration (C of R) and decals for the upcoming series online with One Stop Credentialing and Registration (OSCAR) at www.oscar.ny.gov, or you may use a service bureau approved by New York State.
