Nevada IRP fee changes

Nevada has released its’ IRP registration fees for all jurisdictions. The new fees will go into effect on January 1, 2020. Adjustments were made to account for depreciation factors and to add the Nevada suggested purchase cost (OPC) for 2020.

The update also increased the maximum weight for registration in Nevada from 80,000 lbs. to 129,000 lbs., therefore eliminating the need for an overweight permit for a reducible load.

North Dakota IRP fee changes

Effective January 1, 2020, North Dakota has updated fee schedules for trucks, truck-tractors, tractors and buses. Fees for some weight ranges over 22,000 lbs. decreased in some instances.

Additionally, North Dakota is adding fee schedules for trucks, truck-tractors, tractors, and buses registered at 20,000 lbs. and less.

There are many rules and regulations involved with the International Registration Plan (IRP). Failure to stay up to date with your registration fee, changes to those or rules and regulations cause failure of an IRP audit. We offer mock audits and management that help avoid these types of issues.

Kentucky Updated Fee Schedule, Commonwealth of Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, IRP Changes

The Commonwealth of Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has released a memo stating that Kentucky ad valorem fee conversion factor will change effective January 1, 2019.

Conversion Factor Table and Fee Calculation Example


KY Fee Table

Example Fee Calculation:

Ad Valorem Fee – Purchase Price ($100,000.00) X Year of Purchase Factor (.00608) = $608.00 X Kentucky Mileage Percentage (.50) = $304.00

Weight Fee – 80,000 Pound Weight Fee ($1,410.00) X Kentucky Mileage Percentage (.50) = $705.00

Total Fee – $304.00+ $705.00 = $1009.00

Note: The ad valorem fee is not applicable to any current year purchase and is not prorated.
