Motor Carrier Services Division, “One-Stop Shop”, is responsible for administering three programs for interstate motor carriers.

International Registration Plan (IRP) is a licensing compact between member jurisdictions. Registrations issued under this agreement, are commonly referred to as apportioned or prorated registrations.

International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) is a fuel tax compact between member jurisdictions. One fuel tax license is issued by the base state that authorizes travel in all member jurisdictions. Carriers file one quarterly fuel tax return to their base jurisdiction reporting distance and fuel for the quarter.

Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) is a federal law that requires individuals and companies that operate commercial motor vehicles in interstate commerce to register their business with Nebraska and pay an annual fee based on the size of their fleet. The UCR replaces both Single State Registration System (SSRS) and the Nebraska Interstate Registration (Bingo Stamp) program.

In addition to the above programs, Motor Carrier Services issues  titles and accepts payment of Nebraska Sales/Use Tax and Tire Fee (Form 6) for our carriers.
