Deadline Approaching for UCR Fee Filing

Posted on

The final deadline to file 2021 UCR (Unified Carrier Registration) Fees is fast approaching.

Thursday, December 31, 2020 is the last day to handle 2021 UCR Fees to avoid paying additional fees or penalties, and WCS Permits & Pilot Cars can help you finalize and submit your UCR Fee application.

UCR is a program that requires individuals or companies that operate commercial motor vehicles in interstate or international commerce to register their business with a participating state and pay an annual fee based on the size of their fleet.

WHO IS REQUIRED TO PAY UCR FEES? (If operating interstate commerce in the United States):

  • Motor Carrier of property, both for-hire and private, whether or not they are considered exempt carriers for purposes of federal regulation
  • For-hire passenger Motor Carriers
  • Freight Forwarders
  • Brokers and Leasing companies that lease vehicles without drivers to interstate motor carriers or freight forwarders
  • If the carrier is based out of a state that does not participate in UCR (I.e. Florida), but they are INTERSTATE and cross state lines THEY MUST PAY UCR FEES STILL

WCS has the capability to help you pay those fees quickly and easily. WCS can help with new fees to get your new operation up and running legally, or with past due fees to get you caught up. UCR fees are VERY important and should not be overlooked, as you could face hefty fines, and many states can prevent you from traveling through them.
