Are You Required To File IFTA Fuel Tax?

If you operate in two or more jurisdictions, you must have an IFTA sticker and license.

You are also required to file a quarterly IFTA fuel tax report calculating how much fuel tax you owe (or are credited).

IFTA reporting is necessary because, while state fuel tax would typically cover mileage traveled in a certain state, truckers frequently cross state borders. Therefore, where they purchase fuel isn’t always an accurate depiction of where they’re using it.

You’re required to participate in IFTA reporting if your vehicle has 2 axles and a gross vehicle weight or combined weight over 26,000 pounds, has 2 axles and a registered gross weight over 26,000 pounds, or has 3 or more axles regardless of weight.


What Information Do You Need?

To complete your IFTA tax return, you’ll need the following information:

To get started, simply create a free account with your email. Then, enter business information, vehicle information, and your base jurisdiction, which is your home state or the state where your vehicle is registered.

Then, enter mileage information! You can enter directly from your GPS or use our bulk upload feature to save time.

Use our free IFTA tax calculator to get your total miles, gallons, miles per gallon, and IFTA tax amount.

Our system will automatically calculate MPG for your vehicle(s). You can even select the appropriate MPG range for your vehicle(s) and ExpressIFTA will notice if data you enter falls outside that range and make corrections if needed.

Then, ExpressIFTA will calculate penalties, interest, credits, or refunds based on your Base Jurisdiction’s instructions.

After that, you can email your IFTA tax report to yourself or any selected recipient.
