RigMinders - Say Goodbye to IFTA Penalties

Say Goodbye to IFTA Penalties
Nothing is worse than missing a deadline - that pang of guilt you get in your gut as you realize the due date has come and gone.

It’s even worse when you’re a truck driver, and missing a deadline means you’re gonna get parked. No thank you!

IFTA Deadlines


After every quarter, you have an IFTA deadline you have to meet. As we roll into October, you should know by now that the 3rd Quarter IFTA due date is October 31. Yeah, that’s also Halloween.

Most states penalize for late filing at a flat rate fee of $50 or 10% of the taxes due, whichever is greater. Now, Nevada does things a bit different - their penalty for late filing is a $50 flat fee plus 10% of the taxes due.

If you’re continuously late, you will be charged .4167% of the tax due every month until the tax amount is paid. To no surprise, Nevada is the only exception to this rule. They charge .4167% of the tax due every month as well as an administrative late fee of $100 the first time, $500 the second time, $1000 the third time, $1500 the fourth time, $2000 the fifth time, and $2500 for every time after that. Yikes!

But don’t be scared, because you’re not gonna be late this year.
