How to Prepare For Your IFTA Reporting Deadline

There’s a deadline barreling towards you! That’s right! February 1st is your 4th quarter IFTA reporting deadline. This means you have only a few weeks left to file your IFTA return with your base jurisdiction or you will face harsh penalty fees.

We understand that your first reaction after hearing this might be to panic. IFTA has always been a tedious and complicated process. And with only a week until the deadline, can you afford the time to calculate your IFTA totals alone?

But don’t worry. ExpressIFTA is here to make filing this quarter’s report a breeze!

ExpressIFTA Online IFTA Reporting Instructions


At ExpressIFTA, our goal is to make the IFTA reporting process faster and easier. You can import your information and calculate your IFTA total in minutes. We use this information to generate an easy to read IFTA report. Print or email to complete your IFTA return with your base jurisdiction. It’s that quick and easy!

Signing up and getting started with ExpressIFTA is as easy! Create your free account with an email address and personal password. Then, register your name, contact information, and primary language. ExpressIFTA is a bilingual service available in English or Spanish.

From there, enter your name, shipping address, and business details. This information will also be on your IFTA report. You need this to match your IFTA return with your information in the IFTA database.

Next, enter your base jurisdiction. This will be your home state or the state where your vehicle is currently registered

Then you will enter your vehicle information such as the VIN, make, model, and fuel type used. We even make it easy to track the IFTA totals of your entire trucking fleet – Enter many vehicles and drivers at once.

From here you can enter your mileage information at your own speed. You can add your information per trip, per month, or upload all your information at once with our bulk upload feature. We also accept data collected from GPS and ELDs for added convenience.

Generate Your IFTA Report in Time!

Once you’ve uploaded your information, it’s time to generate your IFTA report!

Our reporting system will check for errors that need correcting. Things like an incorrect MPG range for your listed vehicle could mean a fine. Your IFTA report will also include any penalties, interest, credits, and refunds.

Note: Each state has their own filing requirements. You will need to file your IFTA report according to your base state’s rules and regulations.

For example, some states need you to file a paper IFTA report while others require you to file IFTA online. Luckily, we have a comprehensive list of individual state regulations right here.
