Commercial Truck Single-Crossing User Fee Automation and Prepayment Pilot
Document Number: 2016-10348
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-05-03
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection
This document announces that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) intends to conduct a pilot test program pursuant to its authority under 19 CFR 101.9(a) to allow a new payment option for commercial truck single-crossing user fees. The CBP regulations specify the applicable user fee for commercial trucks upon arrival into the United States and the methods of payment, which include payment on an annual basis or on a per crossing basis. Although commercial truck carriers can electronically prepay the user fees on an annual basis, carriers who opt for the single-crossing user fee must pay the fee upon arrival at a U.S. port of entry. This pilot will enable the owner, agent, or person in charge of a commercial truck to prepay the single- crossing user fee online prior to arrival at a port of entry. This notice describes the pilot, its purpose, how it will be implemented, the duration of the pilot, and invites public comment on any aspect of the pilot. This pilot will not affect the annual commercial truck user fee payment option.
