No UCRA registration until October

By Bob Pitcher, State Laws Newsletter

Registration by motor carriers and other entities subject to the Unified Carrier Registration Agreement for the 2017 year begins soon – but not until Oct. 1. Most carriers and others register for UCR and pay their fees through the national online system operated on behalf of UCR by the Indiana Department of Revenue.

That system, however, is being upgraded for the new registration season, and Indiana has let us know that it will not be taking 2017 registrations or payments until Oct. 1. The UCR Board of Directors has asked the other states participating in UCR not to begin registration until October either.

UCR fees for next year, by the way, are the same as they have been for the last several years.
