3rd Quarter IFTA Due Today!

It’s finally here! The 3rd Quarter International Fuel Tax Agreement deadline has arrived! Hopefully, you’ve had a head start and today isn’t a scramble for you, but if so - don’t worry, we got you covered.

With our web-based software, we’re the best option for generating your IFTA taxes online.

The Basics


If you’re hauling between numerous IFTA member states, you need to have that shiny little decal with your base jurisdiction slapped on the side of your cab. Sure, company drivers may have this taken care of for them, but for everyone else, IFTA filing can be a hassle.

The Penalties


If you don’t file your IFTA report on time, you’re going to face IFTA penalties.

In most member states, the late filing penalty is a flat rate fee of $50 or 10% of the taxes due, depending on which is greater in value.

Unless you’re in Nevada, which is the only state whose penalty for late filing is a $50 flat fee plus 10% of the taxes due.

Once you’re receiving a penalty for late filing, you will be charged .4167% of the tax due every month until the tax amount is paid.

Again, Nevada is the outlier to this rule. If your base jurisdiction is Nevada, you’re charged .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.

The Due Dates


IFTA runs on a quarterly system, which means there are four deadlines throughout a given year. The IFTA due dates are as follows:

  • Q1: January - March, due date of April 30
  • Q2: April - June, due date of July 31
  • Q3: July - September, due date of October 31
  • Q4: October - December, due date of January 31

The Solution


Chances are, if you’re reading this, you need to file an IFTA report. To do that, you’ll have to have your fuel logs, mileage records, and trip logs ready to go.

So if you’re stuck doing the IFTA reporting hustle today, make sure you use ExpressIFTA to have the easiest IFTA quarterly return possible. Have questions? Call our customer support experts at 704.234.6005!
