    Have a question about registration.
    I have an Indiana LLC but live in CA (because I just have to be in CA for kids). Can I register my truck in Indiana and get Indiana plates, UCR based for IN?
    Or will I have to get IN residency and IN CDL first?
    I am not trying to cut any taxes doing this, my LLC doing business in IN for last 6-7 years and basically I pay taxes in IN and CA.
    Thank you for your advices!
     
    kros Thanks this.

    Your domicile for the LLC is Indiana. File your IRP using the LLC.,
    It shouldn't matter which state issued your CDL. Except the issuing state should be your residency.
    You are a separate legal entity from your LLC.

    It depends on the owner of the equipment and how it's registered... the company that is registering the equipment and where that company is located will determine which base state to register your irp.

    I'm about to buy it and want to plan everything before making a purchase. I will buy and register a truck for LLC. Just want to make sure I can do it legally and Indiana will accept it with my CA CDL.
