IFTA Getting Started

IFTA Definition

An IFTA fuel tax report is a quarterly report of distance travelled and gallons purchased in participating jurisdictions. The average fuel mileage is applied to the miles travelled to determine the tax liability to each jurisdiction. Any amount of fuel taxes or refund due is paid to or refunded by the base jurisdiction who issued the license. The jurisdictions are responsible for transferring the funds to the motor carriers accordingly
