ATA Comments on DC Parking Tax

3/11/2013

 

On March 8, 2013, ATA, joined by the Maryland Motor Truck Association, the Virginia Trucking Association, the American Moving & Storage Association, and the Truck Renting & Leasing Association, filed comments with the District of Columbia, once again protesting a proposed scheme by the City to impose a parking tax on commercial vehicles using loading zones in the District.  The proposal has legal problems as well as extremely serious potential for causing significant operational problems for motor carriers doing business in the District.  Joined by the same associations, ATA filed somewhat similar comments two years ago, and achieved not only a delay in implementation of at least two years, but caused DC to delete some of the most complex elements of its scheme.
