We know plenty of truckers who groan when they remember they have an IFTA deadline right around the corner. But what exactly is it that’s so irritating about reporting your fuel taxes?

Well, probably all the fuel receipts, trip logs, and paperwork that is involved in reporting a quarter.

Understanding Trip Logs

Trip logs summarize all of the IFTA information you have entered each IFTA quarter. You can manage each quarter by trip sheets, quick entries, GPS data upload, (or) bulk upload from an Excel or .CSV file.

  • Trip Sheet: Trip sheets are one of the easiest ways to report your IFTA return. They allow you to report trips by driver, vehicle, odometer reading, and starting and ending location, as well as the start and end date. You can also add any additional information you like, including load description, carrier, trailer number, and more.
  • Quick Entries: These work exactly like they sound – quick and easy! Select your vehicle and add your mileage and fuel details one month at a time. Quick Entries gives you plenty of options for reporting, and even lets you breakdown your miles by odometer readings or distance traveled.
