Alright, an IFTA deadline is just around the corner. You know what that means!
It’s time to talk about how we can make IFTA super easy for our TruckLogics users out there.
First things first, make sure you gather all of your necessities. What are necessities? Well, have access to your records and your trip sheets.
The cool thing is, TruckLogics provides an IFTA add-on feature with ProMiles integration that makes generating your IFTA return quick and easy. Basically, TruckLogics tracks all your mileage for you through the trip sheets associated with your dispatches.
Before you get started, make sure all your trip sheets are for the 2nd quarter (April – June) are completed, as TruckLogics uses these to generate your IFTA report. Remember, this is easy when you’re using ProMiles.
Step 1: It Starts with the Dashboard
When you’re in TruckLogics, start by selecting IFTA along the top menu. You’ll see that it is 2nd Quarter 2016, which means you can click “Start New Return.”
If your trip sheets are all complete and your fuel is counted in your expenses, you will see an accurate summary of the total miles, total gallons of fuel, and MPG for the quarter.
Pro Tip: TruckLogics also supports bulk uploading! It’s the fastest way to upload fuel data from a fuel card.
Step 2: Details, Details, Details
First, you need to select which vehicles you want to be included in the IFTA return.
Once you choose, you’ll see a summary of total mileage, fuel use, and MPG for the quarter. After that, you can add any credits or refunds to your return if applicable.
Step 3: Review & Download
With TruckLogics, you finish things off by running your report by our error check, reviewing your return, and if everything checks out – click “Next” to download your 2nd Quarter IFTA return.
*If your state requires e-filing, don’t worry! TruckLogics simplifies that process, and you can quickly generate a fuel tax summary to input into the state’s online system.
