IFTA Reporting Made Easy!


You may be asking yourself, “so what exactly is this IFTA and why do I have to file one every quarter?”

IFTA, or the International Fuel Tax Agreement, was put in place by the lower 48 United States and 10 Canadian provinces. The idea was to simplify fuel reporting for those who use qualifying motor vehicles that travel between two or more jurisdictions.

Before IFTA was put into place, each state had their own rules and regulations to comply with. Fuel reporting was a complicated mess for everyone. Now each jurisdiction adheres to the quarterly IFTA report. IFTA reports determine the net tax refund that’s due and redistribute taxes from collecting states to states that owe.

Ok, enough of the history lesson. What exactly does that mean for you?

First, you must apply for your IFTA license with an IFTA application, and keep it visibly displayed in your cab at all times once you receive it. You also will receive an IFTA sticker that needs to be placed on your driver door. And then there’s your vehicle itself.

Your vehicle qualifies for IFTA if it travels between two or more jurisdictions and fits any of the following descriptions:
