Full Reciprocity Plan Creates Changes in IRP
August 12, 2014 – TaxTalk Blog
For many trucking companies, calculating estimated distances on their International Registration Plan (IRP) renewals can be challenging. For others, the challenge is deciding to travel to an additional state midway through an IRP renewal and having to create a new cab card. Beginning Jan. 1, 2015, both of these IRP registration/renewal requirements are eliminated.
The Full Reciprocity Plan (FRP), recently passed by IRP, is designed to make IRP more efficient, equitable, and flexible for registrants and member jurisdictions. It removes all IRP provisions related to estimated distance and allows full reciprocity for all apportioned vehicles in all member IRP jurisdictions.
To execute this change, all new IRP accounts will register for every jurisdiction listed on their cab cards and pay a per-vehicle distance percentage to each jurisdiction. All jurisdictions will remain on the cab card to allow the flexibility to travel into other states when necessary. The next time IRP accounts renew, they will be charged for actual distance accrued in each jurisdiction.
IRP accounts will see this change on January 2015 IRP renewals, depending on their staggered year. All January renewals will be mailed in September as usual.
