   In accordance with FMCSA MCS-150 regulation 49 CFR Part §390.19, every two years

all motor carriers are required to update their MCS-150 information with the FMCSA. This

update must be completed in the appropriate month, every even or odd year, based on

your DOT#, even if none of your information has changed, and regardless of when you

last updated. Failure to complete a biennial update in your assigned month may cause

deactivation of your USDOT number and could result in civil penalties of up to $1,000 per

day (not to exceed $10,000). If your DOT number ends with the number 5, your MCS-150

may need to be updated. If the number before the 5 is an odd number, you must renew

by the end of May this year. If the 5 is preceded by an even number, you are not due for

an update until May of next year.

Tags beginning with I and J expire May 31st. Those of you with tags beginning with K or L

should send us your paperwork now to avoid late filing penalties. If your tag begins with

M or N, the IRP office is requesting that your renewal paperwork be turned in by

May 15th. Our tag work processing fee begins at $90.
FUEL TAXES – If you have an IFTA account

           Fuel tax filings for 1st quarter 2023 are late as of May 1st. If you had 2022 IFTAs

and have NOT gotten your 2023 stickers, you are still required to file the 1st quarter fuel

taxes. The state charges a $50 late penalty or 10% of what is owed, whichever amount is

greater. Keep in mind that an additional 1% of your total is applied to every month your

fuel taxes are late; so do not delay in getting your information to us! If you have an IFTA

account and did not run in 1st quarter, we will still need a statement from you to file a zero

return to the states. Make sure to keep track of your fuel and mileage for 2nd quarter 2023

which covers April 1st – June 30th. That information will be due to our office by July 15th.

Drug and Alcohol Clearing House

Drug and Alcohol Clearing House:

January 6, 2020 is the mandatory effective date for the use of the Clearinghouse

mandated by Congress to report and query information about driver drug and alcohol

program violations. Employers must conduct both electronic queries within the

Clearinghouse and manual inquiries with previous employers to cover the preceding three

years. The Clearinghouse will improve highway safety by helping employers, FMCSA,

State Driver Licensing Agencies, and State law enforcement to quickly and efficiently

identify drivers who are not legally permitted to operate commercial motor vehicles

(CMVs) due to drug and alcohol program violations. This secure online database will

provide access to real-time information, ensuring that drivers committing these violations

complete the necessary steps before getting back behind the wheel, or performing any

other safety-sensitive function. Get News and Updates about the Clearinghouse by
