(b) between one point on the territory of one party and another point located on the territory of the other party;
without having to register the vehicle or to pay registration fees to the other party. The same privileges shall apply to all trailers or semi-trailers legally registered in any territory and hauled by these motor vehicles.
Motor vehicles registered on the territory of one party shall also be exempt on the territory of the other party from any other charge not levied on motor vehicles registered in the territory of the other party.

In addition, any motor carrier whose base state imposes a regulatory fee, a highway use tax, a road tax, or another third-structure fee on Floride-based carriers shall be subject to the same tax or other fee on vehicles it uses in this state.
All agreements, oral or written, previously agreed upon or entered into by the parties, the effect of which was to grant reciprocity with respect to motor vehicles, are hereby replaced by this agreement.
This agreement shall not affect any existing or future reciprocal agreement signed between one of the parties and any third government.

When a replacement vehicle is of a greater weight or requires a larger registration fee, the registrant shall file the re-registration with the Commissioner in the manner set forth in Article VI for the registration of additional fleet vehicles.
VIII. New operations
Initial application for proportional registration shall state the mileage date in all jurisdictions for the preceding year with respect to such vehicle or vehicles. If no operations were conducted with such vehicle or vehicles during the preceding year, the application shall contain a full statement of the proposed method of operation and estimates of annual mileage in each of the jurisdictions. The registrant shall determine the in-jurisdiction and total mileage to be used in computing the proportional registration fee for the vehicle or vehicles. The Commissioner may adjust the estimate in the application if the Commissioner is not satisfied with its correctness.
(IX) Registration of owner-operator vehicles
(A) Proportional registration for owner-operators who lease their vehicles to motor carriers may be accomplished in one of the following procedures:
(1) The owner-operator (lessor) may be the registrant and the vehicle may be registered in the name of such owner-operator. The allocation of fees shall be according to the operational records of such owner-operator. The identification plates and cab card shall be the property of the lessor; or
(2) The lessee may be the registrant at the option of the lessor and the vehicle may be registered by the carrier, but in both the owner-operator’s name and that of the carrier as lessee, with the allocation of fees according to the records of the carrier. The identification plates and cab card shall be the property of the lessee. Should an owner-operator, registered pursuant to this section, leave the fleet of the lessee, the lessee may proceed in accordance with Article VII.
(3) If an owner-operator desires to register under the provisions of this Article, The Commissioner shall register the vehicle provided the registrant furnishes a street address and telephone number and such other information as the Commissioner may require, to satisfy the Commissioner that the owner-operator can be located for purposes of audit.
(B) Vehicles of owner-operators that are not proportionally registered or not fully registered, shall be subject to trip permit requirements.
X. Trip leasing
The lessee, except as provided for service representatives in Article II.C.2., is responsible for the proper registration of the vehicle. Except that an apportioned operator may lease equipment to another apportioned fleet operator and the lessor shall be responsible for reporting on the proportional application the miles traveled by the leased equipment. The lessee shall be the person using and operating the equipment by the lease agreement. The leased vehicle must bear proportional credentials or a trip permit will be required. The service representative in Article II.C.2. shall have the same responsibility for qualifying his vehicles.
XI. Preservation of records and audit
(A) Any registrant whose application for proportional registration has been accepted shall preserve the records on which it is based for a period of the three preceding years. Such records shall be made available to the Commissioner at his request for audit as to accuracy of computation, payments, and assessments for deficiencies or allowances for credits, during the normal business hours of the day.
(B) If any registrant fails to make records available to the Commissioner upon proper request or if any registrant fails to maintain records from which his true liability may be determined, the Commissioner may, 30 days after written demand for an availability of records or notification of insufficient records, impose an assessment of liability based on the Commissioner’s estimate of the true liability of such registrant as determined from information furnished by the registrant, information gathered by the Commissioner at his own instance, information available to the Commissioner concerning operations by similar registrants and such other pertinent information as may be available to the Commissioner.
XII. Audits
The Commissioner may audit the registrants as to authenticity of mileage figures derived from operational records and registrations and at such time and frequency as determined by the Commissioner.
XIII. Assessment claims under audit
(A) Upon audit, the Commissioner shall assess for any deficiency found to be due. No assessment for deficiency or claim for credit may be made for any period for which records are no longer required.
(B) Assessments based on audit, interest on assessments, refunds, or credits or any other amounts including auditor’s per diem and travel shall be made in accordance with the statute of each jurisdiction involved with the audit of a registrant.
XIV. Effective date and termination
This agreement shall come into force on the date agreed upon by the parties, in conformity with their administrative requirements, and shall be terminated upon thirty (30) days’ written notice by one party to the other.
