Zip Code: Select the zip code that corresponds to the account type selected.
Authorization Info: There are three forms of authorization information you can
choose to verify your account.
1. A payment amount from the last three payments you made to this account. If
the last three payments were $0, you cannot use this option.
2. A letter ID. A letter will be mailed to you in June. The ID is located in the top
right hand corner of your letter.
3. Number validation. If you do not have a payment amount or a letter ID, use
numbers associated with the account. For IFTA, use “total miles” reported on
your IFTA last tax return. For IRP, give a VIN number for a vehicle that is
active on the account.
Once you have gathered this information, you are ready to create a TNTAP logon. Motor
