What Permits Are Required for Colorado?

  • DOT Number

    Mississippi commercial trucking companies must carry a DOT number to remain in compliance and stay safe on the road. The Mississippi Department of Transportation implements an identification system for all Mississippi commercial trucks that ensures drivers are up to date on their licenses and certifications. The DOT number is issued by Mississippi DOT after a truck passes safety inspections, the driver has obtained a valid Mississippi license, and other licensing requirements have been filled. Mississippi DOT is dedicated to providing safe roads for commercial trucking companies and therefore enforces strict license and DOT number regulations.

  • Federal MC Authority

    Mississippi is home to countless motor carriers providing a wide range of commercial trucking services. In order for these Mississippi motor companies to operate legally, they must obtain a Motor Carrier (MC) number from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). This MC number signifies that the motor carrier has been registered and authorized by the FMCSA as a commercial trucking authority. Mississippi motor carriers with this authority are held to high safety standards set forth by the FMCSA, which ultimately help keep roads safe.

  • BOC-3 Filing

    Mississippi commercial trucking companies are required to submit a BOC-3 filing to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. This federal filing is an important document that registers the Mississippi business with the FMCSA and provides them with an operating authority to legally operate interstate commercial trucks within Mississippi and across state lines. It also acts as a legal representative of the Mississippi commercial trucking business, providing notice of legal proceedings directed towards them, so they can ensure their rights are protected. A Mississippi business must complete a BOC-3 filing if they plan on operating as a commercial trucking enterprise within Mississippi or across state lines.

  • UCR Filing

    The Mississippi Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) filing is essentially a form of taxation for commercial trucking companies. Every Mississippi fleet and interstate motor carrier with more than one vehicle must register their trucks with Mississippi UCR and file the appropriate paperwork to pay the necessary taxes. These taxes, collected by Mississippi, are then redistributed to all UCR-participating states in order to cover the costs associated with Mississippi's regulations of commercial trucking. Mississippi utilizes UCR to ensure that all commercial carriers comply with their state requirements prior to entering Mississippi, which helps keep Mississippi highways safe and successful.

  • 2290 HVUT

    Mississippi businesses who operate commercial trucks weighing more than 55,000 pounds are required to file the 2290 Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) with the IRS. Also known as the Highway Trust Fund Tax or Federal Highway Excise Tax, this fee helps Mississippi maintain its highways and other roads for commercial trucking use. The tax applies to all vehicles used for business purposes on Mississippi roads and highways with taxable gross weights of 55,000 pounds or more; however, exceptions exist for vehicles powered by natural gas. Mississippi business owners should familiarize themselves with HVUT guidelines to ensure they stay in compliance with applicable laws and avoid costly penalties associated with filing errors.
