Time To File Your 2nd Quarter IFTA Return

Trucking Nation, it's time to file your 2nd quarter IFTA return. The deadline is Thursday July 31, but why wait when you can get it done now? ExpressIFTA.com allows you to create an IFTA return online in minutes in just a few easy steps:

1. Set up your account. It only takes a second to set up your account. All you will need to do is enter your basic business information, base jurisdiction, and IFTA license number.
NOTE: If you use ExpressTruckTax.com to file your Form 2290, then your IFTA account is already set. You would simply log into your ExpressTruckTax account and select the IFTA  tab at the top of the page.
Choose your unit of measurements for distance and fuel (miles, kilometers, gallons, liters, etc), then enter your truck information.

2. Enter Mileage and Fuel Purchased
Fuel information can be entered manually, uploaded from an excel file, or uploaded from your GPS system.
If you have records of your trips, and enter manually, all that is needed is the State, Odometer reading, and amount of fuel purchased for each trip.

3. Generate IFTA Return
The final step. The system will run a diagnostic report to review your return for any errors based on the estimated Miles Per Gallon. This audit of information doesn't not guarantee that that your IFTA return will be accepted, but it does check  for basic errors that could have been otherwise been overlooked.

ExpressIFTA will automatically calculate the amount of tax due based on all the data entered. And you simply follow the instructions to send the return to your base jurisdiction.
