Order New Mexico Weight & Distance

NMWD is required if you have a declared gross weight or gross vehicle weight over 26,000 pounds and are using highways in New Mexico.

This tax is based on vehicle weight and miles traveled on New Mexico roads. Companies must register and apply each year for a New Mexico Weight Distance Tax Electronic Permit for each vehicle.

  • A vehicle titled in New Mexico that is subject to the weight-distance tax and traveling intrastate is issued a weight-distance plate.
  • A vehicle titled in New Mexico that is subject to the weight-distance tax and traveling interstate is issued an IRP plate.
