IRP Apportioned Fee Calculations

The cost of a DC DMV-awarded IRP apportioned tag will depend upon the percentage of miles traveled in each IRP jurisdiction, the registered combined gross weight of a vehicle, and other vehicle-specific criteria. IRP officials are only able to determine licensing fees when a completed application has been processed.

The chart below is a simplified example of a District-based carrier’s activities that is designed to show how fees are calculated for renewals. In the following chart, a carrier travels 25,000 actual miles each in the District of Columbia, Virginia, Maryland, and Delaware. The vehicle is a Haul-for-Hire truck with a gross weight of 80,000 pounds. As shown in this chart, the District collects a total of $1,580.75 from the carrier. Of this total, the District retains $581.25. The remaining money would be sent to the other states as follows:

State Mileage Percent    Full Year Fee   Apportioned Fee
DC 25,000 25% X $2325.00 = $581.25
DE 25,000 25% X $1390.00 = $347.50
MD 25,000 25% X $1280.00 = $320.00
VA 25,000 25% X $1328.00 = $332.00
Total 100,000 100%       $1580.75

Invoice Payment

Payment for DC DMV IRP apportioned tags is due at registration and can be made by company check, personal check, or certified check only. CASH WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.  Payments are accepted only at the DC DMV Southwest Service Center, which is located at the Southwest Service Center, 95 M Street, SW Washington, DC 20024.
