As an IFTA licensee, you report your fuel purchases and jurisdictional travel within one month of the end of each quarter. The Ministry of Finance will send you an IFTA tax return at least 30 days before each due date. In the 1980s, some states entered into agreements on the establishment of a common revenue distribution program and the removal of the fuel tax authorization requirement. Over the years, this program has become IFTA. In general, you must keep records to document all miles traveled, including the date of your trip, the itinerary, the total miles traveled and the miles traveled in California or any jurisdiction. You also need to put all receipts for the fuel you buy and put in your vehicles. If you keep a fuel storage facility, you need to manage additional records. For the submission of IFTA`s rights, the licensee establishes, at the end of the business quarter, a report on the fuel tax, which lists the miles travelled in all participating jurisdictions and the litres of fuel purchased there. Support documents include mileage, distance readings, fuel readings and vouchers taxed for retail fuels. All relevant data, such as empty miles and fuel vouchers, must be taken into account when notifying IFTA claims. If you wish to travel to these jurisdictions, please contact them for information on their fuel tax reporting obligations.
IFTA only covers fuel taxes. It does not include road taxes, weight and weight taxes, or other specific taxes. You must continue to pay these taxes directly to the countries in which you are travelling. The IFTA Tax Rate Matrix is the official source of all IFTA fuel tax rates. The International Fuel Tax Agreement (FITA) is an agreement between the 48 lower U.S. states and Canadian provinces to facilitate the reporting of fuel consumption by fuel companies operating in more than one country.  Alaska, Hawaii and the Canadian territories are not required to participate, but all of Canada and Alaska do. An IFTA-owned executing carrier receives an IFTA licence and two decals for each qualified vehicle it operates. The carrier provides a quarterly fuel tax return. This report is used to determine the tax or net refund due and to redistribute taxes from collector states to the states due.
Under the Interstate User program, anyone using diesel fuel to operate a qualified motor vehicle inside and outside the state must pay a tax on every gallon of diesel used in that state.
