Toll Miles and IFTA

Toll miles are taxable miles; toll fees are not fuel taxes. They are fees in exchange for the opportunity to use a toll road. Fuel trip permit miles are not taxable miles in any jurisdiction. Include fuel permit miles in the total miles section on the return but do not include them in the taxable miles for the jurisdiction that issued the permit.

Will the Exempt Distance (in miles) show in my IFTA return?
Exempted Miles are used to calculate the mpg, but are not used in calculating the taxable gallons.

On the IFTA Return; you will see the total miles and the total taxable miles which will include the calculation of the exempted miles.

It is your responsibility to contact jurisdictions, individually, to determine exempt miles. It is also your responsibility to maintain records of exemptions for future review.
