What Permits Are Required for Arkansas?

  • DOT Number

    Arkansas requires commercial truckers to register for a DOT number if they are going to operate in Arkansas or other states. A Department of Transportation number is an important piece of paperwork that drivers need, as it provides structure and regulatory oversight for the commercial trucking industry. Additionally, Arkansas state authorities may use this information to look up records regarding payments and violations made by the driver in question. Getting a DOT number is necessary before you can transport goods and cargo across Arkansas, making it an invaluable asset for commercial truckers everywhere.

  • Federal MC Authority

    Arkansas motor carriers rely on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to keep their commercial trucking authority secure. Arkansas companies can obtain their mc number from the FMCSA, providing them with the necessary recognition in order to participate in interstate transportation and commerce. The FMCSA ensures Arkansas motor carriers make necessary changes to remain compliant and that operations adhere to safety regulations. Arkansas motor carriers have come to depend on this federal authority to maintain commercial trucking activities across state lines.

  • BOC-3 Filing

    Arkansas commercial truckers need to be aware of the federal filing called a BOC-3. This document is required if a company intends to transport goods between states or hire interstate drivers. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires Arkansas truckers to have an active BOC-3 filing on file regardless of size or type of goods they are carrying. All Arkansas commercial truckers must comply with this regulation, so understanding and adhering to the details of the BOC-3 is imperative and will help Arkansas businesses stay in compliance with federal regulations.

  • UCR Filing

    Arkansas commercial trucking fleets must comply with Arkansas Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) filings. This filing regulates carriers that provide interstate services, as well as any Arkansas-based carriers operating intrastate. To properly register their fleet, Arkansas commercial truckers must contact the Arkansas Office of Motor Carriers, where they will be required to provide basic information such as company contact details and size of the fleet. UCR regulations are enforced annually to ensure all commercial fleets remain compliant with Arkansas state law.

  • 2290 HVUT

    Arkansas commercial trucking operations are responsible for complying with the 2290 Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT), which is administered by the IRS. The HVUT is a fee on vehicles weighing over 55,000 pounds that are used for business purposes on public highways. Arkansas operators of heavy commercial motor vehicles must pay this tax annually and file IRS Form 2290 to show proof of payment. Payments for the tax must be made by August 31 each year in order to stay in compliance and avoid potential penalties from the IRS. Overall, Arkansas’s taxpayers must be mindful of the HVUT’s filing deadlines to ensure their heavy vehicles remain properly registered and in compliance with federal regulations.
