The end of year is fast approaching! The following permits will expire at the end of the year; UCR, IFTA, New Mexico Weight Distance Tax, Oregon Weight Tax, and our drug and alcohol consortium. Please contact one of our Trusted Transportation Advisors to renew your permits or check out our online services page.
2019 UCR registration is now available.
IRS Heavy Vehicle Highway Use Tax must be paid and the form 2290 filed with the IRS for the 2018‐2019 year by August 31st.
Oregon Weight Tax reports must be filed monthly by the last day of the following month. Contact our Customer Service Department if you would like to hire our company to file these monthly reports for you.
Quarterly Fuel Tax Reports must be filed for IFTA account holders by the last day of the month following the current quarter (April 30th, July 31st, October 31st, and January 30th). We required information be submitted to us by the 12th of the month due.
The start of the 2020 UCR registration period is delayed until further notice while the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) completes its rulemaking process on fee levels for next year. A notice of proposed rulemaking was published in the Federal Register on August 27.
Once the final rulemaking is published later this year, thereby officially establishing UCR fees for 2020, the UCR Board of Directors will recommend that states delay enforcement for three (3) months from the start of the registration period.
Warning: Some carriers are receiving an email from the US Department of Transportation asking for access to be granted to their FMCSA portal. In most cases this email is due to a 3rd party company requesting access to your portal account. Please make sure you only grant access to appropriate users.
We have received several reports from carriers who have received misleading email messages related to the URS biennial update (MCS150). These messages give inaccurate due dates and often are sent when no biennial update is due. You must update your US DOT number when a change occurs with your company and/or every two years. Your due date will depend on your DOT number.
The last digit represents the month your biennial update is due. The second to last digit represents the year, an even number must be renewed in even years and an odd number in odd years.
For example: US DOT Number 1234567 is required to file their biennial update in July of each even numbered year.
All carriers and drivers subject to the ELD rule must use either an ELD or an AOBRD (automatic on‐board recording devices compliant with existing regulations) by December 18, 2017. AOBRDs may be used until December 16, 2019, if the devices were put into use before December 18, 2017. Starting December 16, 2019, all carriers and drivers subject to the rule must use ELDs. ELDs must have the capability of either telematic data transfer or local transfer. For more information on the ELD ruling and how to choose your ELD visit the FMCSA.
Effective January 14, 2017 The FMCSA suspends its regulations requiring existing interstate motor carriers, freight forwarders, brokers, intermodal equipment providers (IEPs), hazardous materials safety permit (HMSP) applicants, and cargo tank facilities under FMCSA jurisdiction to submit required registration and biennial update information to the Agency via a new electronic on‐line Unified Registration System (URS). During this suspension, entities needing to file will follow the same procedures and forms used to submit information to FMCSA as they do today.
FMCSA is extending the implementation date of the final stage of the Unified Registration System (URS) beyond January 14, 2017 because additional time is needed.
July 20, 2016 ‐ Today, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announced that the agency has hit some delays in implementing the Agency's Unified Registration System (URS) and they will not be releasing the URS until January 14, 2017, and establishing a full implementation date of April 14, 2017.
