IFTA Fuel Tax Preparation and Reporting
The International Fuel Tax Agreement is a tax collection agreement by and among the 48 contiguous States and the 10 Canadian Provinces bordering the US, requires states to submit fuel taxes for all motor carriers operated across. Rather than producing multiple reports and managing state-by-state mandates, IFTA lets carriers operating in multiple jurisdictions register in and produce a quarterly report for just one single (base jurisdiction) state.
The IFTA license offers several benefits to the interstate/inter-jurisdictional motor carrier. These benefits include one license, one set of decals, one quarterly fuel tax report that reflects the net tax or refund due. These advantages result in cost and time savings for the carrier and the member jurisdictions.
