Apportioned Decals – Important Notice


Apportioned DecalEffective January 1, 2019 Utah DMV Motor Carrier Services will no longer issue month or year decals for apportioned license plates. Utah Code 41-1a-301 (6)(d)(iii)(B) reads, "A registrant of an apportioned vehicle is not required to display month or year decals."

Owners are still required to maintain current registration for all apportioned vehicles, and present cab cards to law enforcement when requested.

Elimination of yearly decals will begin with December 2018 renewals since their start date is January 1, 2019. Customers will receive a decal that says "Apportioned" in place of a yearly decal.

General Information


Motor Carrier Services maintains the International Registration Plan (IRP) and the International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) for the Jurisdiction of Utah. These programs are reciprocity agreements among states of the United States, the District of Columbia and provinces of Canada, providing for payment of apportionable fees and fuel taxes on the basis of total distance operated and fuel usage in each jurisdiction.

Note: Sales tax is due on any vehicle purchased for intrastate travel regardless of weight. However, if a vehicle is IFTA qualified (over 26,000 pounds) and registered for IRP (interstate travel), it may be exempt from sales tax.
