If you are trying to get started being an owner operator and I tell you that you need to register your truck, get an IFTA permit, and pay a Highway Use Tax – would you even know what I am talking about, much less where to look for the information?
Well, don't worry, I explained each of those terms, then I looked up the addresses and web links for each state for business registration, and the addresses, phone numbers and web links for each state for IRP/IFTA registration.
Couldn't you do this yourself? Sure, you could find a lot of this information yourself, IF you knew what you needed to look for, where to look for it and had 300 hours to kill I have done the work for you, spending well over 300 hours in researching web links for all the information you need to know about truck licenses and permits, business licenses, and state and federal agencies to support the information contained in this book.
Also included are charts and tables illustrating some of the information talked about.
