Frequently Asked Questions - International Registration Plan (IRP)
My vehicle weight is less than 26,001 pounds and I deliver to several locations within another jurisdiction. Do I need IRP plates?
A Kansas based registrant has the option to pay the annual Kansas fleet apportioned registration fee on a quarterly basis. Registrants who elect to pay registration fees on the quarterly payment basis are issued new cab cards after payment of each quarter.
- The payment of the Kansas annual apportioned registration fee on a quarterly basis applies only to the fee applicable to Kansas and only on a new account, renewal application, or supplemental application adding vehicles before March 1 if payment is received.
- The amount of the Kansas annual fee shall exceed $300.
- The quarterly payment basis relates only to an alternate method of payment of the Kansas annual fleet apportioned registration fee.
- The first quarterly payment of the Kansas annual apportioned registration fee, including Kansas issuance fees, title fees and any supporting documents for registration plus all apportioned registration fees due other IRP jurisdictions, shall be received on or before March 1 of a registration year.
Failure to provide the foregoing requirements on or before March 1 of a registration year shall result in the applicant being required to pay the Kansas annual fleet apportioned registration fee in full, including any registration penalties.
The remaining Kansas annual fleet apportioned registration quarterly payments are due and payable on or before: Second quarter due - April 1 Third quarter due - July 1 Fourth quarter due - Oct. 1.
It shall be unlawful to operate the fleet vehicles when payment is delinquent. If a fleet is detained because of a delinquent quarterly installment, authorization for operation cannot be allowed until proper payment has been made and clearance provided.
No temporary wires are issued for a registrant who has expired registration. A billing notice is provided 20 to 30 days prior to due date. Failure of a fleet owner to receive a billing notice shall not waive or excuse the fleet owner from the payment.
When a fleet owner is delinquent past the due date, a Notice of Lien shall be filed with the Register of Deeds of the county in which the fleet is based. A copy of the Notice of Lien shall be provided the fleet owner showing the amount due. The amount due covers the delinquent quarterly payment, any remaining quarterly payments, and a penalty in the sum of ten percent of the original Kansas total fleet annual apportioned registration fees. A stop title is filed with the Titles and Registrations Bureau and the title cannot be issued to a new owner until the lien has been satisfied.
After a Notice of Lien has been recorded by a Register of Deeds, a Tax Warrant shall be issued to the Sheriff of that county. The Sheriff shall seize and hold all property subject to the lien and advertise and sell the property or an amount of the property to satisfy the state's lien.
When a registrant is delinquent more than ten days beyond the due date of any quarterly payment, such registrant is denied the option to pay the annual Kansas apportioned registration fee in quarterly payments for the next two registration years.
My vehicle was leased to a Kansas based carrier. I broke lease. How can I move my truck without a license plate?
You must also register for IFTA and file motor fuel road tax reports on a quarterly basis if the vehicles within your fleet:
- have two axles and a gross vehicle weight or registered gross vehicle weight of more than 26,000 pounds; or
- have three or more axles regardless of weight; or
- are used in combination, when the combined weight is more than 26,000 pounds gross or registered gross vehicle weight at any time.
