APPORTIONABLE VEHICLE — Except as provided below, any power unit that is used or intended for use in two or
more member jurisdictions and that is used for the transportation of persons for hire or designed, used or maintained
primarily for the transportation of property, and: (i) has two axles and a gross vehicle weight or registered gross vehi-cle
weight in excess of 26,000 pounds (11,793.401 kilograms), or (ii) has three or more axles, regardless of weight,
or (iii) is used in combination, when the gross vehicle weight of such combination exceeds 26,000 pounds (11,793.401
A recreational vehicle, a vehicle displaying Restricted Plates, a bus used in the transportation of chartered parties or
a government-owned vehicle is not an Apportionable Vehicle; except that a truck or truck tractor, or the power unit in
a combination of vehicles having a gross vehicle weight of 26,000 pounds (11,793.401 kilograms) or less, and a bus
used in the transportation of chartered parties, nevertheless may be registered under the plan at the option of the reg-istrant.
A Vehicle is determined to be apportionable according to the characteristics and use of the Vehicle or the Combination of
Vehicles. Trailing equipment, however, is only registered under the Plan pursuant to an approved Exception, unless it is
registered under Section 910 of the IRP Plan.
Certain types of vehicles or Combinations of Vehicles that travel or are intended to travel in two or more Member
Jurisdictions, but are not otherwise within the definition of Apportionable Vehicle may be apportioned if the Registrant so
chooses. Vehicles not apportioned are subject to registration and fee payment in accordance with each Base
Jurisdictionʼs general registration statutes. These non-apportionable Vehicles may be entitled to Reciprocity in other
Jurisdictions under applicable Reciprocity Agreements.
The intent of the Registrant or Applicant to operate a Vehicle in two or more Member Jurisdictions is to be considered as
an objective fact, determined from all the circumstances of the particular case. The fact that a Vehicle is not used in more
than one Jurisdiction for the entirety of a Registration Year and for six additional months gives rise to a presumption that
the Registrant did not intend to use the Vehicle in more than one Member Jurisdiction. Such a presumption may be over-come,
however, by other circumstances presented by the Registrant.
BASE JURISDICTION — The Member Jurisdiction, selected in accordance with Section 305 of the IRP Plan, to which
an applicant applies for apportioned registration under the plan, or the member jurisdiction that issues apportioned
registration to a registrant under the plan.
ESTABLISHED PLACE OF BUSINESS — A physical structure located within the base jurisdiction that is owned or
leased by the applicant or registrant and whose street address shall be specified by the applicant or registrant. This
physical structure shall be open for business and staffed during regular business hours by one or more persons
employed by the applicant or registrant on a permanent basis (i.e., not an independent contractor) for the purpose of
the general management of the applicantʼs or registrantʼs trucking-related business (i.e., not limited to credentialing,
distance and fuel reporting, and answering telephone inquiries). The applicant or registrant need not have land-line
telephone service at the physical structure. Operational records concerning the fleet shall be maintained at this phys-ical
structure (unless such records are to be made available in accordance with the provisions of Section 1020 of the
IRP Plan). The base jurisdiction may accept information it deems pertinent to verify that an applicant or registrant has
an established place of business within the base jurisdiction.
ESTIMATED DISTANCE — Either (i) the anticipated distance a fleet is expected to travel in a member jurisdiction
during an applicable registration year as reported by an applicant, or (ii) the distance assigned to the fleet by the base
jurisdiction as determined in Section 320 of the IRP Plan.
RENTAL FLEET — Vehicles the rental owner designates as a rental fleet and which are offered for rent with or with-out
