Seems like there may be a misunderstanding about the International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA).
Both PA and NY recognize the IFTA fuel sticker. In fact, all vehicles registered over 26,000 lbs in both states are required to report total fuel usage on a quarterly basis. This applies to every state except AK, HI, the District of Columbia, and some parts of Mexico and Canada. The form has line items for mileage for each state. A NY truck will not be stopped in PA for fuel tax evasion unless he has failed to submit the quarterly report.
Here is a FAQ regarding the IFTA.
Seeing as how I don't live in NY or PA, there may be other permit requirements that I am not aware of. My apologies if that is the case.
You will need an apportioned license plate and New York and Pennsylvania will have to be listed on the list of states apportioned for on the owners card. New York also requires a HUT sticker on the bumper. If you get pulled over by a DOT cop you will need more than just the IFTA sticker on the cab.
