The International Fuel Tax Agreement (or IFTA) is an agreement between the United States and the Canadian provinces meant to simplify the reporting of fuel use by motor carriers who operate in more than one jurisdiction (state). IFTA state filing tax rates are based on what each state has set and may vary from state to state.
ExpressIFTA is the best method for easy IFTA filing—but generating IFTA returns isn’t all that ExpressIFTA can do! It's also a great tool for saving your records in case of an audit, afterall, it’s always a good idea to have a backup of your trips sheets. Since you are required to file an IFTA return if you haul freight between 2 or more member jurisdictions, operating a qualified motor vehicle and have an IFTA license. The IFTA member jurisdictions include the 48 contiguous states and also 10 participating Canadian provinces. To file an IFTA return, you will need your employer identification number, mileage, and fuel receipts. Then you can upload your miles via trip data entry, quick entries, or even GPS upload.
To make IFTA filing even easier, you can know your tax amount before you even generate your return with the IFTA Fuel Tax Calculator App. All you do is select the state and mileage driven, and the app automatically calculates the amount of tax you will owe. It’s great for planning out your expenses.
