What Permits Are Required for Kansas?

  • DOT Number

    Kansas requires commercial trucking companies to have a valid DOT number in order to operate within the state. The FMCSA- Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration issues these numbers as part of its program to regulate carrier safety. All commercial trucks and buses that drive over Kansas roads must register this number, which is used to monitor the company's safety record. Kansas DOT also maintains records on the company, including inspections, citations, and accidents. Acquiring a Dot number for commercial trucking companies is necessary for Kansas road safety and compliance with the laws of the state.

  • Federal MC Authority

    The FMCSA grants authority in the form of a MC Number to Kansas motor carriers for interstate transportation of property, but those numbers must be applied for. To make the process easier, Kansas has implemented an automated system that simplifies and streamlines the Federal MC application process for Kansas motor carriers. This new system makes it much simpler for Kansas-based motor carriers to acquire their MC Numbers quickly and efficiently, allowing them to legally conduct business across state lines without delay.

  • BOC-3 Filing

    Kansas commercial trucking companies may be required to have a specific federal filing known as a BOC-3. This filing is different from other Kansas filings, as it involves filing with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) instead of the Kansas Department of Transportation. The BOC-3 filing is especially important for Kansas commercial trucking companies because it enables them to obtain operating authority in all US states and territories. Furthermore, any Kansas commercial trucking company that intends to do business outside Kansas will likely need a BOC-3 filing in order to remain compliant.

  • UCR Filing

    The Kansas Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) filing is an important component of the commercial trucking industry. UCR is a federally mandated fee system that requires every commercial fleet operating in Kansas (or crossing state lines) to register with Kansas and pay a fee based on its size. Kansas, through their UCR filing, tracks the vehicles operated by fleets and ensures they are compliant with regulations put forth by Kansas and the DOT. UCR filings must be renewed annually and correspond to motor vehicle registration requirements and safety inspections. Not only does this filing help Kansas better regulate and secure trucking routes, it also helps keep commercial truckers safe by ensuring that all vehicles being operated are up to standards set forth by Kansas and other government entities.

  • 2290 HVUT

    A 2290 Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) is a federal excise tax assessed by the IRS that Kansas commercial truck owners and operators must pay for their vehicles. This tax applies to any vehicle that has a gross taxable weight of 55,000 pounds or more, and is used for highway travel within Kansas during the year. All commercial truckers operating in Kansas are responsible for registering with the IRS and paying their 2290 HVUT prior to filing their annual motor vehicle returns. All payments are due by July 1, and those who fail to file and pay in time risk facing late fees along with interest penalties.
