Your Trucking Guide To IRP Reporting

0
ExpressTruckTax makes Form 2290 easy
When it comes to truck taxes there are multiple forms to file and tons of deadlines. We know that you’re familiar with your Heavy Vehicle Use Tax Form 2290, and you regularly file your quarterly IFTA return, but what about your IRP return?

Your IRP return is actually pretty closely related to your HVUT return, and IFTA report, because you need your Schedule 1 to complete your IRP return, and you also need to track your mileage per jurisdiction. This may seem overwhelming, but we’re here to help clear everything up.

The Trucking Guide To IRP Reporting


First of all, IRP is the International Registration Plan and it’s a reciprocal agreement that authorizes proportional registration among the 48 contiguous United States and 10 Canadian provinces.

This agreement provides apportioned payments based off of the total distance operated in each jurisdiction (state). That means the operator of the vehicle must report the number of miles traveled per jurisdiction on an annual basis and pay the amount of taxes they owe to their base jurisdiction (home state).

IRP Requirements

You are responsible for completing your IRP return if you operate a heavy vehicle that operates in more than one jurisdiction and it:

  • Weighs more than 26,000 pounds
  • Has three or more axles, regardless of weight, or
  • Is a power unit and trailer with a gross vehicle weight higher than 26,000 pounds.
To first receive your IRP license you must register with your base jurisdiction. Then you will receive your IRP license, which should be carried in your cab at all times. You will also have a specially marked license plate.

Then each year you will need to file your IRP return to renew your tags and to continue legally operating in multiple jurisdictions. Your IRP return deadline is based on the expiration date on your license plate.

In order to complete your return, you need to list the mileage traveled per jurisdiction during the year. Your mileage can be recorded with the same online program you use for your IFTA report, like ExpressIFTA.

What Is Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) Used For?

0
The Heavy Vehicle Use Tax or HVUT is an annual fee assessed on heavy vehicles operating on public highways at registered gross weights equal to or exceeding 55,000 pounds. The gross taxable weight of a vehicle is determined by adding the unloaded weight of the motor vehicle and any trailers together with the maximum load customarily carried on-road by the truck-trailer combination. IRS Form 2290 is filed annually to pay the HVUT due on the taxable vehicle and proof of payment is the Stamped Schedule 1.

The damage to the road surface caused by heavy trucks is 160,000 times more than that of a car, according to the findings of the American Association of State Highways Official (AASHO) road test. The tax, which is based on the vehicle weight, is a significant source of transportation funding in the US. The HVUT ensures that operators of heavy trucks pay a little more for the highway network relative to the motorists than the light trucks who meet their responsibility through other forms of taxes (e.g., registration fees, motor fuel taxes) but do less damage to the system.  The monies collected are used to help pay for road repairs and maintenance.

The IRS has simplified the process of filing Form 2290 and paying your HVUT taxes with the ability to E-File.  Anyone who is filing a return with 25 or more vehicles is required to file electronically, but everyone is encouraged to do so.  Through an IRS Authorized E-File Provider, like ExpressTruckTax.com, you can file your Form 2290, pay your HVUT taxes owed to the IRS and receive your Stamped Schedule 1 within minutes.  Having the option to E-File makes the annual filing process quick and easy.
