Verification of an established place of business in Indiana is required. An “established place of business” is a physical structure owned, leased, or rented by the registrant.
A Post Office Box Number or a Rural Route Number is not an acceptable business address for International Registration Plan (IRP) registration. A valid street address or an identifiable location within the State of Indiana such as “on County Road 26” or “one mile east of County Road 15” is an acceptable business address.
If you are a registrant that already has an established place of business in Indiana, you may have what’s called a base jurisdiction. This means that the only things you may have to provide the Department’s IRP Unit are three current years of verified Indiana tax returns filed with an Indiana address. However, if you do not have records of Indiana tax returns, then you will need to provide further proof of an Indiana established place of business by following the same steps as a business with no residence. See requirements below.
