Using ExpressIFTA vs. Preparing Your Own IFTA Return

Perhaps the most frustrating thing in our country is preparing tax returns. IFTA returns are no exception. We’re here to relieve the stress of IFTA returns. But if you decide to prepare your own IFTA return, be ready for a lot of headaches.

The Pains of Preparing an IFTA Return by Yourself

For one thing, it takes A LOT of time. From reading the instructions, to understanding the instructions, to getting all your records together, to actually filling out the forms, you’re going to lose so much time, time that you could be spending doing the things that really matter to you.

Who wants to put all that effort into figuring tax rates and (gasp!) doing math? This could seriously tax (pun sort of intended) your brain and put extra stress on you that no one needs. Isn’t that what calculators and computers were invented for?

And who can clearly understand
IFTA anyway? Only the experts, and again, who has the time and energy to become an expert, at least enough of one to prepare an IFTA return on their own? No one, because there are so many better things to be doing, and so many better ways to spend your energy.

We Make It Easy

ExpressIFTA to the rescue! For one low price, our experts become your experts. So there’s no need to figure out IFTA law, decode IFTA tax rates, or to even know how to do math. We do all that for you. All you need to do is log on and enter your mileage and fuel purchase information and the rest is done for you. You’ll have your IFTA return done in minutes anytime you need it.

Moreover, if you make any mistakes that would keep your return from being accepted, ExpressIFTA will catch them and let you know about them. So another form of stress is taken away from you by us. And this error-checking feature reduces the chances of you being audited, which is just one more way we’re working for you.

ExpressIFTA stores all your IFTA information in one convenient location, so you’re not forever looking through papers and receipts for what you need. It’s all right there in your account once you enter the information.

If you’d like even more convenience and stress relief you can sign up for a business management program like TruckLogics, which uses ProMiles to enter your trip information automatically, giving you one less thing to do and worry about. And at the end of each quarter, much like ExpressIFTA, it uses that data to generate a complete IFTA return for you, ready to be printed and mailed.

Let’s not forget the best part: you can try ExpressIFTA for free. You only have to pay when you download your return.

And, as always, we’re here to answer any questions or concerns you may have using ExpressIFTA. You can reach us on the phone at 704.234.6005, chat with us from the web, or email us anytime at

Let us know about how much time and effort ExpressIFTA has saved you from using by either tweeting at us on Twitter, or posting on our Facebook page. You could simply tell us how difficult preparing IFTA on your own is. And thank you, Trucking Nation, for your support. We can’t do what we do without you!
