International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA)
International Fuel Tax
IFTA is a multi-jurisdictional fuel tax agreement among member jurisdictions to simplify the reporting of fuel taxes.
The minimum registered gross vehicle weight (GVW) requirement to register under IFTA is 11,797 kilograms or a unit with three or more axles, regardless of weight.
Carriers have two choices when it comes to Fuel Tax. The carrier can either purchase fuel permits each time they wish to travel to other jurisdictions or they can enroll in the IFTA program.
The carrier then keeps track of the kms and the litres of fuel purchased in each jurisdiction that they travel into for each registered Unit and submits the information to our office to file quarterly. (March 31, June 30, September 30, and December 31)
We can help
Our office registers the carrier’s units under the IFTA program and provides them with decals for their units. We can also provide decal replacements or add/delete units to the program.
Filing for New Mexico, Oregon, and the Yukon is done separately or carriers can buy separate permits for these jurisdictions.
