    Have you registered a 1 ton in AZ? If so, you should have heard of this or something close to it. I agree that it doesn't make much sense.

    Yes I own an F350 that is registered in AZ. I don't remember paying any extra fees when I registered. It's due next month so I guess I'll see what happens when I go to renew.

    just look at your current registration, it will state in the fees section on the right side. the breakdown should go something like this:
    veh lic tax
    registration
    comm reg
    weight
    air quality
    (special plate) if it applies.

    at least this is how my mine is...

    Either way, there is no such thing as a "duely".
    We all want to use words in a way that makes us sound professional, so that they'll perhaps have a positive impact on our long-term success. Yet caring too much about words can lead some of us to fall into an easy trap: becoming overly critical of the words other people use.

    If you're a teacher, maybe this doesn't apply to you; it's your job to correct students' grammar. But, some of us--even professional writers--need to turn it down a notch.

    (Bonus content:The Big Free Book of Success, my free e-book, which you can download here.)

    So, if you want to avoid becoming known as a hyper-corrective jerk, start accepting some of these minor errors in other people's diction. Here 17 of the most obvious.

    1. Him/her or his/her versus them or their
    We don't have a gender-neutral singular possessive word in English, so many of us use "they" or "their" when technically "him or her" or "his or her" is correct. Instead of pointing this out when other people do it, however, congratulate them for trying to solve one of the biggest linguistic challenges in the English language.

    2. Who versus that
    "That" refers to things; "who" is used for people. This one is a personal pet peeve of mine, but that's no reason to make a federal case out of it. So be the kind of person who keeps it to yourself.

    3. Less versus fewer
    This one drives me a little crazy as well--but it's also not worth arguing about. Technically, you use "fewer" when you're talking about things that can be quantified or counted easily ("This checkout line is for people with nine items or fewer."), and "less" when you refer things that can't be counted easily ("We need less hatred in the world.")

    4. Skipping the "-ly" in adverbs
    You might remember the Apple marketing campaign, "Think different." Grammatically, it's flat-out wrong to skip the -ly in an adverb--but the truth is, nobody cares.

    5. That versus which
    The issue here is the use of that or which at the start of a clause in the middle of a sentence. The easy way to remember the rule is that if cutting the clause would change the meaning of the sentence, use "that;" if it's not necessary, use "which." If that confuses you--well, it confuses just about everyone. Don't bother correcting it.
