What's Required To Complete Your IFTA Return?

Whats Needed To Complete IFTA?
You already know that you have to complete your quarterly IFTA fuel tax return, and the next deadline on October 31st will be here before you know it. Don’t let the deadline sneak up on you. You don’t want to rush to get all of your totals ready.

Stick with ExpressIFTA to become an IFTA expert and easily complete your quarterly fuel tax return in a matter of minutes! We make tracking your totals incredibly easy. By the way the information required to complete your IFTA return includes:

- The total miles traveled per jurisdiction
- The total amount of fuel purchased per jurisdiction
- The total amount of fuel consumed per jurisdiction
- The current tax rate jurisdiction
- And the amount of tax paid per gallon of fuel per jurisdiction.

IFTA Reporting With ExpressIFTA


We keep saying the word ‘jurisdiction’, to clarify a jurisdiction is a state that you travel in. Your IFTA report is actually due in your base jurisdiction or home state. Your base jurisdiction is also where your truck is required to be registered.

ExpressIFTA is full of innovative features to help you complete your IFTA return by providing you with quarterly IFTA reports. All you have to do to get started is create your free account, enter your business information, add your base jurisdiction, enter your vehicle details, list your miles and fuel records, and then generate your quarterly IFTA report!

You can enter your trip information at your own pace. Use the trips logs to enter your fuel usage, purchases, and miles traveled per jurisdiction as they happen, or all at once with the quick entry screen. You can even upload all of your information with an excel or .CVS file, or directly from your fuel card.

IFTA calculating software
ExpressIFTA takes care of every complicated calculation for you so you can relax. We will accurately calculate the amount of IFTA tax you owe based off of your information so you don’t over or under pay. We can also convert your miles to kilometers or gallons to kilometers and vice versa at any time.

Also, you never have to worry about keeping up with the tax rate per jurisdiction. ExpressIFTA automatically updates with the current tax rates per jurisdiction each quarter.

You can run reports for your mileage and fuel records at any time to show you your specific information for any time period. The reports and your quarterly IFTA report will all be organized per quarter and saved in the event of an audit. You can view previous reports at any time to reference for your business.

Plus, our built in diagnostic error audit can be run on your reports to catch any basic errors based on your estimated miles per gallon. It recognizes when miles traveled aren't between adjacent states and if you purchased fuel in a state you haven't traveled in. However, this audit doesn’t guarantee that your IFTA report won’t get rejected.
