The International Registration Plan (IRP) and International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) are cooperative programs to collect and distribute registration and fuel tax revenue between member states and Canadian provinces. The programs benefit carriers by consolidating licensing and reporting requirements through the base (home) state.
An IRP and IFTA account is required for companies that have vehicles crossing state lines that are over 26,000 pounds gross vehicle weight or have 3 or more axles on the power unit.
For IRP you will receive your Apportioned License Plate for your power unit and an Apportioned Cab Card that lists the states/provinces you have registered your vehicle to operate in. For IFTA, you will receive a set of decals (stickers) for you power unit and an IFTA license to be kept in the cab.
Trucks that lack the correct permits or have expired permits can be subject to serious penalties. The trucker will be fined and forced to obtain temporary permits. Above all else this means a bid delay. In some cases the trucker will be off loaded onto another properly permitted carrier at the trucker’s expense. Time and money lost again. Even further, the truck can be impounded until all permit issues are taken care of.
Apportioned vehicles possess two axles and a registered gross vehicle weight in excess of 26,000 pounds. A power unit with three or more axles, irrespective of weight, is also an apportioned vehicle. Buses used to transport chartered parties may be proportionally registered, though apportioned registration is not required.
A cab card must accompany each apportioned license plate. This card indicates exactly in which states the vehicle is authorized to travel without a trip permit. The non-transferable apportioned cab card must be kept in the vehicle at all times and must be surrendered with the plates should the vehicle be deleted from a fleet.
The International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) is an agreement among states to report fuel taxes by interstate motor carriers. To register, you must:
have an established place of business in the State from which motor carrier operations are performed,
mileage must be accrued in your State,
your operating records of the fleet must be maintained or can be made available in your State, and
you must operate in at least one other IFTA jurisdiction.
Under the IFTA, you are issued an IFTA license and one set of your State IFTA decals for your truck, which will allow you to operate in all other IFTA jurisdictions without buying additional decals from those jurisdictions. A copy of the IFTA license may be used in your truck instead of the original license.
