Apportion Renewal

The Apportion Registration class is also known as I. R. P.  or International Registration Plan. This is a program for licensing commercial vehicles (Trucks, Truck-tractors, Trailers, and Buses) engaged in interstate operation among member jurisdictions (States and Provinces in North America) and is used for the transportation of persons, property, or vehicles in return for compensation.


The Texas Department of Transportation issues this plate directly and they impose all taxes and fees according to several factors such as states required for work, home county, vehicle weight and value, and combined gross weight to be carried.


If you've come here to renew your Apportion Registration, you'll find a list of documents we'll need to take care of this for you, below.  If you don't currently hold an account  and would like to set one up, use this Apportion Account Setup link to establish an account with the Texas Dept of Transportation for your vehicle.

This is requested when the insurance being provided is in the name of a company and you are the legitimate owner or officer of said company

A daily account of all trips taken, including routes taken, hours traveled, miles traveled, and state traveled through.  These log books will be submitted to the apportion division, if requested to do so. 


IRS Form 2290 Heavy Road and Use Taxes

 If your vehicle is to carry a combined gross weight of 55,000 lbs or more, you will have to show proof that payment was made for Heavy Road and Use Taxes or a Form 2290 and Schedule 1 to show proof of payment.  If you have not paid these taxes, we can make arrangements to have these taxes paid as part of your apportion renewal service for an addition $85.00 services fee plus your taxes.  The tax amount for your form 2290 are usually $550.00 and are due in May of every year.  If you have not paid these taxes however, a penalty will be assessed by the IRS, which will raise the actual cost of your taxes.  However, there are exemptions should your vehicle not have been in operations in months prior to your filling of form 2290.
