The annual certification by the State Governor or designated official regarding the collection of the heavy vehicle use tax serves as the FHWA’s primary means of determining State compliance. The FHWA has determined that an annual certification of compliance by each State is the least obtrusive means of administering the provisions of the legislative mandate. In addition, States are required to retain for 1 year a Schedule 1, IRS Form 2290, Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Return (or other suitable alternative provided by regulation). The FHWA conducts compliance reviews at least once every 3 years to determine if the annual certification is adequate to ensure effective administration of 23 U.S.C. 141(c). The estimated annual reporting burden is 102 hours; the estimated recordkeeping burden is 510 hours for a total of 612 hours. The 50 States and the District of Columbia share this burden. Preparing and processing the annual certification is estimated to require 2 hours per State. Recordkeeping is estimated to require an average of 10 hours per State. Respondents: 50 State Transportation Departments, and the District of Columbia for a total of 51 respondents. Frequency: Annually. Estimated Average Annual Burden per Response: The average burden to submit the certification and to retain required records is 12 hours per respondent. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: Total estimated average annual burden is 612 hours. Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of this information collection, including: (1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the U.S. DOT’s performance, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of the U.S. DOT’s estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; (3) ways to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the collected information; and (4) ways that the burden could be minimized, including the use of electronic technology, without reducing PO 00000 Frm 00126 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the quality of the collected information.
