IRP Getting Started

IRP Overview

The International Registration Plan (IRP) is a registration reciprocity agreement among states of the United States, the District of Columbia, and provinces of Canada. It provides for payment of apportionable registration fees on the basis of total distance operated in all jurisdictions. The fees are calculated based on percentage of distance traveled by jurisdiction. IRP covers registration of heavy commercial motor vehicles traveling into more than one jurisdiction. IRP registration is completed annually, and the IRP form is updated each year. See http://www.irponline.org for more information about the IRP.

Note: Contact your local jurisdiction for the proper forms and local process requirements.

Data displayed in the EROAD Depot IRP tab can be used in the completion of the IRP registration form. The IRP tab automatically aggregates all distance traveled in each jurisdiction for the reporting period.

IRP Data in Depot

The following activity is a prerequisite that must be accomplished before Depot can begin capturing vehicle data.

Prerequisite

Before the IRP mileages and calculations can be included in reports, your vehicles must have the IRP tax service setting enabled in the Manage Tax Services section of the Administration > Vehicle / Assets screen. This is typically part of the onboarding process when you first use Depot. See Administration > Vehicle/Assets for more information. 

Note: Ensure that all values in the Details section of the Vehicles/Assets pane are completed during the onboarding process, so that the data is captured and properly displayed under the IRP tab sheet.

Accessing IRP

  1. Click the Tax menu.
  2. Click the IRP tab.

Note: Viewing options are described on the IRP Report help page.
