Penalties for not filing your Quarterly IFTA Fuel Tax Return

Failure to file a IFTA Fuel Tax return, filing a late return, or failure to remit any or all tax due will result in a penalty of $50.00 or 10% of the net tax due to all member jurisdictions, whichever is greater. Interest is computed on all delinquent taxes dues each jurisdiction at a rate of 1% per month.

Even if you have a net refund, interest still applies to each jurisdiction for any underpayment of fuel use tax to that jurisdiction and is calculated beginning the day after the due date of the return for each month, or fraction of a month, until paid. So the longer you are late, the more you will owe.

The deadline for 2nd quarter IFTA returns was July 31st, so if you have not yet filed your return, you will want to file it not to avoid further interest.  ExpressIFTA has made a complicated tax form easy. To get started simply create an account and begin entering your trip sheet information, that’s it! If you have any questions along the way, please do not hesitate to contact our friendly USA-based IFTA Fuel Tax Team at 704.234.6005 or email us at
