Delays In The Processing Of Commercial User Fee Payments

The government shutdown has 
impacted the National Finance Centers ability to process the annual user fee payments for commercial vehicles.  This has caused a delay, and some commercial conveyances are being flagged as not having paid the annual user fee, when in fact they have.  To help alleviate this, commercial operators should print a receipt confirming payment when renewing, or purchasing a transponder online.  This receipt can then be used as proof of payment when crossing at Ports of Entry.
