IRP New Account Document List

To open a new IRP account, you must either:

  • Claim Indiana as your base jurisdiction by having a qualifying "Established Place of Business" (EPB); or
  • Reside in Indiana.

Most owner-operators, sole proprietors and new businesses in Indiana can establish base jurisdiction using residency. Residency may also be an option if a business cannot show an EPB because it is new to Indiana.

When conducting business with DOR, you will need:

  • A valid government-issued ID. An Indiana Driver's License is required to show residency.
  • A Power of Attorney (POA-1) if you are representing the applicant
