    I gave up on getting all my crap together and wasting time.
    I pack it all up in an envelope write a check and send it all together usually a week/ the Temp comes in then the plate.
    Then again not everyone has a week to spend waiting for dmv. But, I gave up on going In waiting for them to tell me I’m missing something stupid

    Are we talking about California IRP ? My California experience is totally different.

    In Stockton California, the DMV really do not know what they are doing then. Because i took my truck to them for vin verification and they told me to take to CHP. I called IRP in Sacramento and they said IRP plates and account setup can only be done online. No walk ins. Was told that it may take 1 to 4 weeks to process.

    I am a member of AAA and their DMV services will not process commercial vehicles or trailers. I heard that California Trucking Association do have DMV services for commercial vehicles but have not contacted them since i have given up.

    Sales Tax, may not be collected in the beginning if you declare that truck will be used out of state most of the time. However, 6 month to 18 months afterwards, California tax board will send you a request for you to prove that your vehicle was mostly used out of state. They now want log books, fuel receipts, BOL, ifta filings as proof. 10 years ago, i only had to send in my load settlements to satisfy their requirements that most of my run was out of state. Now, if your very first paying load was picked up in California, you just voided your tax exemption. Also, you must have a notarized out of state delivery posession form signed at the time that you picked up the vehicle or trailer. Failed in any of these requirements, then you will owe backed taxes with penalties assessed.

    Ya that's all correct. Except that a 3rd party dmv registration service is authorized to issue irp, which is why I went that route. I also dont operate in California, rates suck. But its where I'm from.

    So what's exactly the big difference as far as being an employee besides you'll have to structure your business as a corporation (llc, or Inc, etc), pay yourself or your driver on a w-2 ,and provide insurance, correct?

    I trying to figure out how much more would it cost me to start a trucking business with 1 truck and trailer leasing on vs having my own Authority, because I know the AB5 law not allow you to run your company being leased onto another carrier anymore, at least that's my understanding?

    Here What I know about Tax Exemption. As you know I picked this truck from AZ so I have a proof of out of state Pickup and for First load of yesterday I bring it just for VIN verification after that I got loaded In Reno, NV so technically I just crossed CA. last thing of 49% driver out side CA so Thats not a problem this truck will Run from Az to WA/OR so It will cover 49% out of state miles. Correct me if I’m wrong because its first time when I purchased a truck from Private sale.

    I’m not sure about full year IRP Plate cost because my other trucks plates will expire in Feb 2020 so thats By for this truck I just paid for 2 months. I’ll renew plates in Feb 2020 for my all trucks. I think if you have an IRP account then It should be $2100-$2200
