What is IFTA?

The International Fuel Tax Agreement is an agreement between states to report the fuel consumption of motor carriers that drive in more than one state. Here are the fundamental IFTA rules:

• To register, you must have an established place of business in your base state from which motor carrier operations are performed.

• Mileage must be accrued in your base state.

• Your fleet operating records must be maintained or can be made available in your base state.

• You must operate in at least one other IFTA jurisdiction.

What is the expiration and the renewal date for IFTA decals?

IFTA decals expire on the last day of December of each year.

How can I avoid IFTA taxes due at the end of each quarter?

You must fuel in each state that you drive. The IFTA agreement affirms that you will pay the taxes the state charges at the pump on any mileage run in that specific state, even if you did not purchase fuel there. Remember to retain all fuel receipts and all your trip sheets which prove the mileage records for each state.

When are the IFTA reports deadlines?

International Fuel Tax Agreement Return reporting Quarters (Any Given Year):

January - March (Due by last day of April)

Weight Distance Taxes

The Weight Distance Taxes (WDT) represent an additional tax charged by Kentucky, New Mexico, New York and Oregon on mileage traveled within these states.

If you are planning to have these states in your route, remember to apply for permits and be aware of the additional tax charge for International Fuel Tax Agreement filing.

Who is required to file IFTA?

Carriers must have an International Fuel Tax Agreement license for vehicles crossing state lines which have 2 axles and a GVW/GVWR of 26,001 lbs or more; or if they have power units with 3 or more axles. You cannot drive without a IFTA license. The report is filed quarterly and includes the ratio between driven miles and the amount of fuel gallons you purchased in each state you drove.
