Oregon Trucking Association and three member trucking companies have filed suit in Douglas County Circuit Court alleging that motor carriers have been over-charged for road use under the state’s weight-mile tax. Indeed, the state's own study concluded that trucks are disproportionately paying for Oregon highways.
OTA was joined in the suit by A&M Trucking, LLC in Glendale (Douglas County), Sherman Bros. Trucking Harrisburg (Linn County), and Combined Transport in Central Point (Jackson County). These three companies alone say they have collectively overpaid their weight-mile taxes by $925,000 since January 2022.
