The Date of First Use question is a big one. There's the question of what the Date of First Use means, especially when you've owned your truck for a long time.
When you've owned a truck for a long time, and you drive it every month then you're date of first use is probably July of each tax year. When you get a NEW truck (or at least a new-to-you truck) the date you first start driving or using the truck becomes very important. Taxes are prorated when a new-to-you vehicle isn't put into use in July.
