What Documents Are Required for IRP Registration?
First time (original) IRP registration applicants must provide the following information:
USDOT Number (person responsible for the safe operation of the vehicle). The Federal Motor Carrier MCS-150 must be updated during the 12 months before the first day of the renewal period.
Taxpayer ID Number (FEIN).
Documentation verifying the Minnesota business address.
Individuals must report their Minnesota driver license number.
Proof of Federal Heavy Vehicle Use Tax payment for all vehicles over 54,999 lbs. (G/CGW) that qualified for operation in any jurisdiction.
Power of Attorney paperwork for applicants represented by a paid registration service agent for IRP registration purposes.
What Constitutes the “Established Place of Business”?
“Established place of business” means a physical structure owned, leased or rented by the IRP registrant. The location of the physical structure must be designated by a street number or road location, open for business during normal business hours, and has:
One or more telephone numbers publicly listed in the name of the fleet registrant. The applicant or registrant does not need a landline telephone service at the physical structure.
One or more employees conducting the business of the registrant (not a registration service).
The fleet Operational records. These must be available if requested.
Rental of a desk or desk space in a structure that is not owned, leased, or rented by the registrant does not constitute a valid place of business for purposes of IRP registration qualification.
The established place of business cannot be the address of a registration service agent.
The established place of business for owner/operators may be their home address.
Registrants who meet any of the criteria for the definition of a Minnesota Base State under Minnesota Commercial Truck and Passenger Regulations Section 2 (pg.12) normally must declare Minnesota as their IRP base jurisdiction.

How Is the IRP Base Jurisdiction Defined?
The Base Jurisdiction means the jurisdiction where the registrant has an “established place of business.” It must be a physical location from which mileage is accrued by the fleet and where fleet operational records are maintained or available for inspection.
