Benefits of ExpressIFTA (Fuel Taxes Online)

We are an industry leader offering truck tax solutions with the best value and pricing in the trucking industry. With ExpressIFTA entering your mileage and fuel details has never been easier. Our program is easy to use and there is no cost to sign up and there are no monthly fees or contracts with ExpressIFTA.

Our program provides accurate fuel tax calculation and we support all 48 states that participate in IFTA. This will eliminate the most common errors that occur with the IFTA Quarterly Tax Return, which are mistakes in math calculations. Our simple entry for odometer readings and the ability to maintain distance and fuel records online makes it easy to keep track of your mileage and fuel purchases.

If you already use Express Truck Tax to file your Form 2290, there’s no need to set up another account. When you log into your ExpressTruckTax account, you will see an IFTA button at the top of the page. Select this option, and click Go to IFTA. This will automatically register you with an ExpressIFTA Account. To Get Started, Click Begin. If you have not yet used our program, simply create an account with ExpressIFTA, all you need to do is enter basic information about the filing party such as contact information and EIN. You will also be asked to enter your base jurisdiction and IFTA license number.

Once the business information is entered, you can select the units of measurement that you will be using (such as miles, kilometers, gallons, liters, etc.). For the vehicles on the IFTA return a unit number, gross weight, vehicle type, fuel type, and VIN number can be entered.

To enter the mileage into the system, it can be entered manually, or an excel file can be uploaded to automatically record this.  Using the excel upload can significantly cut down on the amount of time that it takes to submit this information. If you have records of your trips and would like to enter them manually, all that is needed is the State, Odometer reading, and amount of fuel purchased for each trip.

The system will then run a diagnostic report to review any possible errors on the IFTA return based on the estimated Miles per Gallon. This audit of information does not guarantee that the IFTA return will be accepted.  It simply checks for basic errors that could have otherwise been overlooked.

The best part about organizing the IFTA return online is that our system automatically calculates the amount due based on all of the previous data entered. There is no need to get frustrated over complicated tax calculations.
