MTF Coalition

MTF CoalitionA major barrier to modernizing the truck fleet is the current federal excise tax (FET) on heavy-duty trucks. This tax on most new heavy-duty trucks has grown from 3 to 12 percent today and routinely adds $12,000 to $22,000 on the price of a new truck. The FET also can depress new heavy-duty truck sales and delay the deployment of cleaner, safer and more fuel-efficient trucks.  Modernize the Truck Fleet (MTF) is an industry coalition to build support for FET repeal and to identify viable funding options to replace this burdensome tax.
