Owners of commercial vehicles paying an apportioned registration to the State of Indiana under the International Registration Plan, shall pay an apportioned tax calculated by dividing instate actual miles by total fleet miles generated during the preceding year. If in-state miles are estimated for purposes of proportional registration, these miles are divided by total actual and estimated fleet miles.
