The South Dakota Department of Revenue is notifying the trucking industry of a delay to the start of 2019’s Unified Carrier Registration (UCR).


The UCR’s Board of Directors announced the delay of the registration date until further notice. The delay will allow Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) time to complete its rulemaking process on fee levels for 2019. Once the rulemaking is complete, the UCR Board will issue a recommended enforcement date three months from the start of the registration period.


South Dakota will honor this enforcement date and suspend International Registration Plan (IRP) and International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) accounts that have not processed their 2019 UCR registration in time. 


Carriers will be notified when the 2019 UCR online registration is available at For those with a South Dakota IFTA license, 2019 IFTA renewals will be processed as received effective immediately without UCR.
