Late IFTA Filing

As most of you are aware, October 31 was the 2015 3rd quarter deadline, but since October 31 was a Saturday, the actual deadline for filing your IFTA return ended up being midnight November 2. If you haven’t filed your 3rd quarter return yet, doing so as quickly as possible will help to minimize your penalty interest that started accruing November 3.

What penalties have I incurred since I haven’t filed my IFTA return yet?

The interest is calculated at .4167% of the tax you owe in each jurisdiction, and is figured on a monthly basis. You’ve already incurred a debt of $50 or 10% of any taxes you owe, whichever is greater. If you don’t owe taxes, the penalty is $50. No one wants to pay more than they have to, or run the risk of having IFTA license revoked. So make sure you that you get your return filed as soon as possible.
