Electronic Filing

Tax Users, Unit Managers and Client Administrators can electronically file WM reports in EROAD Depot via EROAD’s secure ACH payment gateway.

NOTE: Fuel tax or other credits can only be applied when filing a Weight-Mile report manually by generating the report in PDF format and submitting to ODOT.

 

To electronically file a Weight Mileage Report:

  1. Go to Tax tab / Weight Mileage screen.

  2. Select the reporting period.

  3. Click Include Vehicles to add WMT vehicles that are not on the Weight-mile report (e.g. new installation).
    From the window, check the applicable vehicles and click Choose Selected Vehicles to add.

  4. Verify that data displayed in the Weight Mileage screen is complete and correct for the selected period.

    NOTE: Configurations listed against a vehicle in Depot might comprise configurations previously registered with ODOT with an associated declared weight that is no longer valid. It is the carrier’s responsibility to only report valid configurations with currently appropriate declared weights.

  5. Click file report.

    NOTE: File Report is only available if the reporting period has finished, a report for this period has not been filed yet and at least 50% of your fleet are equipped with Ehubos as required by ODOT in order to allow electronic filing (OAR 740-065-0010). Alternatively, see here for instructions on how to manually file a WM Report by generating the report as a PDF file.

  6. If a bank account has not been set up previously, fill in your organisation’s bank account details for ACH payments:

    NOTE: Only Client Administrators have the right to set up and edit bank account details for their organization. Please contact a Client Administrator within your business if no bank account has been set up previously.

    account details

    Once entered, the account details will be securely stored in EROAD Depot for future use when filing reports with ODOT. The bank account number will never be displayed in full, it will only ever appear in a masked format, e.g. xxxxx6789.



  7. Confirm details by clicking Next.

    authorize wmt payment

  8. Initiate the filing of your report by clicking Authorize Payment.

    Once you have authorized the payment, you will receive an email to confirm that the filing of your report has been initiated. This is typically a 72 hours process. The filing of the report is successful once payment has cleared, you will receive confirmation by email.

    The filing of the report will fail if payment is rejected by your bank. You will be notified by email. Please rectify the issue and start the filing process again.

    The current status of the filing process will be displayed on your Weight Mileage screen alongside a PDF copy of the report that has been filed.

    NOTE: Once a Weight Mileage Report has been successfully filed, it cannot be electronically re-filed for the same period. Find instructions on how to re-file here.
