ICC Filing: 

  • ICC Filing: When you are 'For-Hire' and haul loads across state lines for pay, most loads you haul across state lines will require ICC Filing from the Federal Government in Washington. You will require this ICC Filing if you haul loads across state lines as a For-Hire carrier and get paid to haul these loads in a van, a pickup truck, pickup truck towing a trailer, straight truck, straight truck towing a trailer, or a semi-tractor and trailer. It doesn't matter which of these vehicles you drive, you will need ICC Filing to cross state lines.  The main difference in the application for ICC Filing is the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of a vehicle such as a van, pickup truck or truck, or the Combined Gross Vehicle Weight Ratings (CGVWR) of a power unit and trailer such as a pickup truck pulling a trailer, truck and trailer or semi-tractor and trailer. Where the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR), or Combined Gross Vehicle Weight Ratings (CGVWR) of of the power unit and trailer are 10,000-lbs or under in the application for ICC Filing, you will need a minimum of $300,000 in Personal Injury / Property Damage liability insurance. If the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of the vehicle, or the Combined Gross Vehicle Weight Ratings (CGVWR) of the vehicles are 10,001-lbs or greater when applying for ICC Filing, the requirement is for a minimum of $750,000 Personal Injury / Property Damage liability insurance. MC Authority is the official name used for ICC Filing. In the process of applying for ICC Filing, you will need a USDOT number. If you already have a USDOT number, you will need a PIN number for the application for ICC Filing

Exempt from ICC Filing Requirements:  

  • Farmer with farm plates:  ICC Filing is not required. A farmer with a farm-plated truck crossing state lines does not need ICC Filing. A farmer driving a farm-plated van or pickup truck with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of 10,000-lbs or less, or a pickup truck pulling a trailer with Combined gross Vehicle Weight Ratings (CGVWR) of 10,000-lbs or less across state lines is not required to have a USDOT number or register for ICC Filing. If the truck has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 10,001-lbs or more, he will need a USDOT number, but will not need to register for ICC Filing. If the truck is pulling a trailer, or a semi-tractor pulling a trailer with Combined Gross Vehicle Weight Ratings (CGVWR) of 10,001-lbs or more, he will need a USDOT number, but not ICC Filing.  In addition to a USDOT number, if the farm-plated truck, or farm plated truck pulling a trailer exceeds 26,000-lbs crossing state lines, you will need to register with the state for IFTA fuel tax but, again, not ICC Filing. If you have a farm-plated semi-tractor and trailer crossing state lines, you will need to register for a USDOT number and IFTA fuel tax but not ICC Filing. The state IFTA fuel tax offices ar listed down the left side of this page. 
  • Private Carrier hauling their own products:  ICC Filing is not required. Manufacturers and other businesses hauling their own products across state lines in any vehicle with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 10,000-lbs or less, or a vehicle pulling a trailer with Combined Gross Vehicle Weight Ratings (CGWR) of 10,000-lbs or less is not required to have a USDOT number or register for ICC Filing. If the vehicle crossing state lines has a GVWR of 10,001-lbs or more, or the truck or semi-tractor is pulling a trailer with the CGVWR of 10,001-lbs or more, a USDOT number is required but not ICC Filing.  
  • For-Hire Carrier hauling exempt products across state lines:  ICC Filing is not required. If a Carrier is hauling exempt commodities across state lines such as corn, livestock or logs to a lumber mill, and the truck has a gross Vehicle Weight Rating of 10,000-lbs or less, a USDOT number is not required, and ICC Filing is also not required. But if the truck has a GVWR of 10,001-lbs or more, or the power unit pulling a trailer have CGVWR of 10,001-lbs or more, the carrier is required to have a USDOT number, but not ICC Filing.

ICC Filing Requirements: To obtain ICC Filing, you will need a USDOT Number, register for the BOC-3 List of Process Agents and carry Personal Injury / Property Damage liability insurance. For ICC Filing / Common Authority, you will also need Cargo Insurance to cover the value of any cargo you will be carrying. The time span for the application for ICC Filing is around 21 days. When applying for ICC Filing, a USDOT Number is required. In the application process, a Docket Number will be issued, but ICC Filing will not be granted until the Feds have the items they need for the ICC Filing. Once ICC Filing has been granted, a letter of authority will be issued to carry in the truck or trucks. Once your ICC Filing has been granted, registration for the Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) process will be required. Once you have your ICC filing, you will go through a New Entrant Carrier Safety Audit process.  Typically, a member of the State Police, Motor Carrier section will visit you and spend 3 - 4 hours going over all the items concerning Safety you need to have in place as a Motor Carrier that has been issued ICC Filing. Within these items concerning safety are 16 Critical Items that need to satisfy the Safety Auditor. If you fail any of these 16 Critical Items, you will fail the Safety Audit. If you fail the Safety Audit, your ICC Filing will be taken away from you and you will lose it. We are told that half of the truckers that go through the interviews will fail the Safety Audit because they do not have all 16 Critical Items in place. You just need to fail one of these 16 Critical Items and you lose your ICC Filing.

Time Scale for the Application for an ICC Filing:   The process of obtaining your ICC Filing usually takes between 21 and 24 days, but can take much longer if there is a delay in submitting the required documentation. If the application for ICC Filing is submitted and payment is made with a credit or debit card, and proof of liability insurance and the BOC-3 List of Process Agents is submitted on a timely basis, the ICC Filing application process will take 21 - 24 days to complete. If a check is used to pay the Feds for the application for the ICC Filing, the process could take several weeks as the check has to clear your bank before the process starts. When the Feds in Washington receive copies of the insurance forms for your ICC Filing, 7 days are added to the date the forms were received before ICC Filing could be granted. Whichever comes last - the 21 day application process, or the 7 day time period after receipt of the insurance forms is when ICC Filing will be granted.

ICC Filing Docket Number: When you apply for ICC Filing, you will be assigned both a USDOT Number and a Docket Number (you may already have a USDOT Number, in which case this number will be used for the application process). This Docket Number will be used as a reference number during the application process. Once you have been granted ICC Filing, this Docket Number will then be used as your ICC Filing number. Once your ICC Filing has been granted, you can legally start hauling loads. Be careful when you start hauling loads. Make sure you have the Letter of Authority (or a copy of the Letter of Authority) with you in your truck, as some scale-masters may penelize you if you cannot show them this letter. If you apply for ICC Filing / Common Authority, this letter is called a Certificate of Authority. If you apply for ICC Filing / Contract Authority, the letter is called a Permit. When your ICC Filing is granted, your letter of authortiy will take 7 - 10 days to reach you at your mailing address. Again, you will need this letter, or a copy of this letter in your truck to start hauling loads. Many scalemasters do not consider you have ICC Filing unless they can actually see this letter.  We can arrange for this letter to be faxed to you either on the day your ICC Filing is granted, or by the following day. 

Personal Injury / Property Damage Liability Insurance required an ICC Filing:  In the application for ICC Filing, if the weight of the loaded vehicle, or the combined weights of both the power unit and the trailer is 10,000-lbs or less and you are hauling non-hazardous loads on a For-Hire basis across state lines, you are required to carry a minimum of $300,000 in Personal Injury / Property Damage liability insurance when you are granted ICC Filing. If you are applying for ICC Filing with a truck with a GVWR of 10,001-lbs or more, or a power unit pulling a trailer with CGVWR of 10,001-lbs or more hauling non-hazardous material, for the application for ICC Filing, you are required to carry a minimum of $750,000 in Personal Injury / Property Damage liability insurance. With ICC Filing involving hazardous loads at any weight, you will be required to carry between $1 million and $5 million in liability insurance. 

Cargo Insurance required for ICC Filing:   When an application for ICC Filing with Common Authority is made, you are required to carry a minimum of $5,000 in Cargo Insurance. In reality, you will need to have sufficient cargo insurance to cover the value of the cargo at the time an application for is made for ICC Filing. When an application for ICC Filing / Contract Authority is made, you are not required to show proof of Cargo Insurance. You may be hauling sand, gravel, stone etc across state lines and may not need cargo insurance. If you have a dedicated contract with one shipper who will provide cargo insurance on the loads, Contract Authority can be applied for. Otherwise you will need Common Authority in the application for ICC Filing

New Entrant Safety Audit with the application for an ICC Filing:

When you apply for an ICC Filing, you will be required to go through a New Entrant Safety Audit. After submitting the application documents for an ICC Filing to Washington, the USDOT will send you a letter asking you to make a call to (888) 877-2181. When you make that call, you will need to give them your USDOT number, or MC number associated with the application for an ICC Filing. The USDOT will then contact the state Police, Motor Carrier Division and let them know you have called them about the Safety Audit. Somone from the State Police, Motor Carrier Division will then call you and set up a time and date for a New Entrant Safety Audit.  

New carrier entrant audits look for “deadly sins”

Catholicism has its seven sins considered fatal to spiritual progress — lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy, and pride. Now the
 ICC Filing has 16 sins considered fatal to a new motor carrier’s progress in the business.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has raised the bar for passing a new carrier safety audit.  In December 2008, the agency announced that a new carrier will automatically fail an audit if it has committed any of 16 violations. For 14 of the violations it’s “one strike and you’re out.” For two of them — failing to require a driver to make a record of duty status and using a commercial motor vehicle not periodically inspected (the annual inspection requirement) – violations must have been discovered 51% of the time in trips audited.

New carriers with an ICC Filing who commit the violations risk losing their operating authority if the problem is not soon corrected. The regulation went into effect February 17, 2009.

All new interstate motor carriers are considered a ‘New Entrant’ for 18 months after they register for an ICC Filing with the FMCSA and receive a U.S. DOT number. New carriers are required to pass a safety audit within this period of time. A carrier who fails an audit is notified within 45 days and given 60 days to correct the problem or lose their ICC Filing. Passenger carriers and hazmat haulers are given only 45 days to correct violations. Once the FMCSA revokes the authority and issues an out-of-service order, the new entrant must wait 30 days before again applying for an ICC Filing and starting the process all over.

New carrier entrant audits are usually conducted at the carrier’s place of business, although group audits can be arranged. It takes 2-4 hours as auditors ask 72 safety-related questions, including 19 related to hazardous materials. They check compliance with requirements related to insurance, accident records, equipment and maintenance records, driver qualifications, CDL license standards, driver records of duty status, drug and alcohol testing, and hazardous materials, if applicable.

The new entrant audit for an ICC Filing was originally designed to stress education before enforcement. In the past it was a pass/fail audit that very few failed. If an auditor found critical safety problems it triggered a formal Safety Compliance Review. A carrier could still pass, for example, even if it did not have a drug and alcohol-testing program or had not implemented random testing.

Under the new rules a carrier automatically fails if an auditor finds a single occurrence of these violations.

FMCSA looked back at audits conducted in a recent five year period and estimated that 47.9% would have been failures under the new rules. Since about 40,000 audits are done each year, which means more than 19,000 new entrants could now fail annually. “One would not necessarily expect such a high failure rate to persist after the rule is implemented,” FMCSA noted in a December 2008 Federal Register notice. “Upon implementation of this rule, many carriers will take the appropriate action to pass the stricter new entrant safety audit, and the actual failure rate will be significantly lower.”

The following are the safety regulations, which are being called the “16 deadly sins” that will result in the failure of a new motor carrier entrant audit, or Safety Audit for an ICC Filing:

  1. Failing to implement an alcohol and / or controlled substances testing program:  ‘No employer shall allow a driver, who the employer intends to hire or use, to perform a safety-sensitive function (driving a truck) until the driver has received a negative controlled substance test result’.  Suggestion:  The owner / driver of the truck who has been granted an ICC Filing take a drug / alcohol test and keep the test results for the Safety Audit as proof you have implemented an alcohol and / or controlled substance testing program. 
  2. Using a driver known to have an alcohol content of 0.04 or greater to perform a safety-sensitive function.
  3. Using a driver who has refused to submit to an alcohol or controlled substances test required under Part 382.
  4. Using a driver known to have tested positive for a controlled substance.
  5. Failing to implement a random controlled substances and/or alcohol testing program.
  6. Knowingly using a driver who does not possess a valid CDL driver’s license.
  7. Knowingly allowing, requiring, permitting, or authorizing an employee with a commercial driver’s license, which is suspended, revoked, or canceled by a state or who is disqualified to operate a commercial motor vehicle.
  8. Knowingly allowing, requiring, permitting, or authorizing a driver to drive who is disqualified to drive a commercial motor vehicle.
  9. Operating a motor vehicle without having in effect the required minimum levels of financial responsibility coverage (liability insurance; and cargo insurance if required).
  10. Operating a passenger-carrying vehicle without having in effect the required minimum levels of financial responsibility coverage (liability insurance).
  11. Knowingly using a disqualified driver.
  12. Knowingly using a physically unqualified driver.
  13. Failing to require a driver to make a record of duty status, such as logbooks.
  14. Requiring or permitting the operation of a commercial motor vehicle declared "out-of-service" before repairs are made.
  15. Failing to correct out-of-service defects listed by the driver in a driver vehicle inspection report before the vehicle is operated again.
  16. Using a commercial motor vehicle not periodically inspected.

The Name of Your ICC Filing:  Before you apply for ICC Filing, you need to have a name to use for your ICC Filing. There are several ways you can name your trucking business and ICC Filing. The basic way is to have your name as the business name. You can also add a d/b/a (Doing Business As) to your name, and have this d/b/a name showing on the signs on your truck after you get your ICC Filing. If you go this route, most states require you to register the d/b/a name at your local county courthouse or county offices.  In the process of applying for your ICC Filing, the d/b/a name needs to be entered.  Your insurance policy associated with the application for ICC Filing needs to also show your name followed by the d/b/a name, otherwise there will be a conflict in the application process and the application for your ICC filing will be held up until both the full application name and the insurance policy name match exactly.

To become an LLC or to Incorporate for your ICC Filing:  The name you use for your ICC Filing can be your personal name, your personal name followed by a d/b/a name, or you can become a Limited Liability Company (LLC) or Incorporate when you register for ICC Filing. You need to Incorporate or register as an LLC before establising your ICC Filing. If you apply for your ICC Filing before Incorporating or becoming an LLC, this may create problems if you use the LLC name or Corporate name in the application for your ICC Filing as the name may already be registered with the Secretary of State. First register the LLC / Corporate name with the SOS and then apply for ICC Filing. Briefly, by becoming an LLC or Incorporating, this sets up a limited amount of liablity protection for your personal assets. This will not neccessarily protect your ICC Filing business from liability (beyond the liability amounts covered by the Personal Injury / Property Damge liability insurance amount registered with your ICC Filing), but it may protect your personal assets from a liability lawsuit.  Before applying for ICC Filing, you will need to register the LLC or Corporate name with the Secretary of State and obtain an EIN Federal Identification Number (we can do this). The name you choose for you trucking business and ICC Filing needs to be a unique name that is not already registered with the Secretary of State.  If you want to go this route, we should be able to register the ICC Filing name and get you a Federal ID Number.  Again, this needs to be done before the application for ICC Filing starts. There is something else to consider when doing this. If you already have a USDOT Number in your personal name, do you want to assign this USDOT Number to the LLC or Corporate name when you apply for ICC Filing, or do you want to get a different and separate USDOT Number for the LLC or Corporate name when you apply for your ICC Filing. If you already have an IRP license plate in your name from the IRP office, the plate was issued in both your personal name and a USDOT Number associated with your personal name. The two go together. By assigning this USDOT Number to the new LLC name or Corporate name when you apply for ICC Filing, you will be moving the USDOT Number from one legal entity (you, and your Social Security Number and/or personal Federal ID Number you use for your 2290 Federal highway Use Tax) to a different legal entity (the new LLC or Corporate name with it's own new EIN Federal ID Number when you apply for ICC Filing). This could cause a problem with your IRP license plate. If you decide to use the same USDOT Number you currently have associated with your personal name and assign it to the LLC or Corporate name, you will no longer have a USDOT Number assigned to your personal name, and you need this number in association with your IRP license plate. In short, the IRP office could demand the license plate back from you without compensating you for the unused portion of the license plate, and insist you apply for a new IRP plate in the LLC or Corporate name when you apply for your ICC Filing.  the answer is, of course, to get a new USDOT Number in the LLC or Corporate name in the application for ICC Filing, and keep the current USDOT Number in your personal name. Boy, that's a mouthful!  Call us and let's see what we can do to get you ICC Filing and possibly register you with the Secretary of State and get you an EIN Federal Identification Number.  By the way, we can process and take your 2290 Federal Highway Use Tax to the IRS for you. Call us for a Federal ID number, register with the Secretary of State, apply for a USDOT number and ICC Filing.

Emloyer Identification Number (EIN) / Federal Identification Number used with your ICC Filing: You will probably need an EIN number for your ICC Filing. In addition to the EIN number for your ICC Filing, you will need this EIN - Employer Identification Number to file the 2290 Federal Highway Use Tax. Most owner-operators who have trucks registered with license plates 55,000-lbs or above have a Federal ID Number to file their annual 2290 Federal Highway Use Tax. If you are going to establish an LLC or a Corporation for your ICC Filing, you will need a separate EIN Number from the EIN Number you may have in your personal name for the LLC or Corporation as these are different legal entities than you. You may need the same EIN number, or you may need a different EIN number for your ICC Filing. Call us.

IRP / Apportioned License Plate needed with ICC Filing:  In the application for ICC Filing, you will probably cross state lines. When you apply for ICC Filing and your van, Pickup truck, pickup truck and trailer combination, truck, truck and trailer combination are all 26,000-lbs or under when loaded, you will not need an Apportioned / IRP license plate. Once you have your ICC Filing, if you have a 3-axle truck that will be crossing state lines at any weight, you will need an Apportioned / IRP license plate for this truck. Again, once you have your ICC Filing, if you have a truck, or a truck and trailer combination at 26,001-lbs or heavier, or a semi-tractor and trailer crossing state lines, you will need to register for an IRP / Apportioned license plate. If you want to go on your own, you will need ICC Filing as most states require you to either be a Private Carrier, For-Hire Carrier hauling exempt commodities, For-Hire Registrant leased to a trucking company, or a For-Hire Carrier with your own ICC Filing before issuing an IRP plate.

IFTA / International Fuel Tax Agreement Needed with ICC Filing:   With the application for ICC Filing, you will probably be crossing state lines. If you have an IRP / Apportioned license plate to cross state lines, you will also need to register for IFTA fuel tax. The list of IFTA fuel tax offices is down the left side of this page. Once you have your ICC Filing and have signed up for IFTA fuel tax, the state will require you to file quarterly IFTA fuel tax reports. We can do the quarterly IFTA fuel tax filings for you. Call us for the application for ICC Filing and, once you are registered for IFTA, we can set you up with the reporting schedule. Once you have your ICC Filing and are starting to haul loads, the state will require you to keep accurate records of all trips made during each quarter with your truck or trucks. Again, if we register you for ICC Filing, we can send you trip sheets you can use that will double as records for both the IFTA fuel tax reporting and for your IRP license plate renewals each year.

Weight - Distance Tax State Registrations Needed with ICC Filing: When you get your ICC Filing, you may need to go into one or more Weight - Distance Tax states. They are New York, Kentucky, New Mexico and Oregon. Again, if you are applying for ICC Filing, you may be traveling into any one or more of these Weight-Distance tax states.

  • New York State:  After getting your ICC Filing, New York requires you to pre-register with them before going into that state. They have a registration fee of $15 per power unit, and any vehicle weighing 18,001-lbs or greater is required to register for the New York Highway Use Tax (NY HUT). You will be required to keep accurate records of miles traveled in the state and file the quarterly Weight-Distance tax reports. We can apply for your ICC Filing and pre-register for your NY HUT
  • Kentucky: You are required to have your ICC Filing granted before registering for a Kentucky KYU number if you are plated at 60,000-lbs or more. Again, Kentucky requires active ICC Filing with Kentucky showing on your IRP cab-card for the KYU registration. You need to pre-register for a KYU number before entering. Once you have a KYU number, you will need keep accurate mileage records and file the quarterly Weight-Distance tax reports with them. We can apply for your ICC Filing, and pre-register you for a KYU number
  • New Mexico: After getting your ICC Filing, you have the option of paying at the New Mexico Port of Entry or registering for an account number and paying quarterly. Once you have your ICC Filing and get a New Mexico account number, you will not be required to pay at the Port of Entry every time you go into New Mexico. Instead, you will be filing quarterly Weight-Distance tax reports with the state. Typically, if you are plated at 80,000-lbs and cross on I-40, you will be paying $60 at the New Mexico Port of Entry to cross the state. If you pre-register for a New Mexico account number, you will be paying around $16.75 for each trip at the end of each quarter. We can apply for ICC Filing and register for a New Mexico account.
  • Oregon: Oregon does not have a fuel tax. Once you get your ICC Filing and you want to register with Oregon, the registration process requires you to file a $2,000 Bond with the state, and you will be filing monthly Weight-Distance tax reports.  Or, when you get your ICC Filing, you can simply pay at the Port of Entry to go into Oregon. We can register you with any of these states and do the Weight-Distance tax reports for you at the end of each quarter. 

In Addition to ICC Filing, Intra-State Trucking Authority: In addition to obtaining an ICC Filing for hauling loads across state lines, you may need Intra-State Trucking Authority to pick up and deliver loads inside your home state. Look at your home state below to see if you will need Intra-State Trucking Authority for your home state, or for the state next door. Call us if you need that authority.
