Information You Need To File Your IFTA Fuel Tax

This is the information you’ll need to collect before you can complete your IFTA tax return:

The IFTA fuel tax is an effort to redistribute fuel taxes equally among jurisdictions (the states you drive through).

Since truckers are constantly crossing state lines, state fuel taxes alone do not accurately portray the total mileage traveled in each state.

For instance, a trucker could fill up in South Carolina and then immediately cross into North Carolina. There, they could drive twice as far without ever filling up.

Is the South Carolina state fuel tax distributed amongst the states correctly?

No. This is where IFTA fuel tax comes in.

By reporting mileage and travel, drivers are held accountable for mileage driven in each state.

This IFTA deadline covers mileage traveled between the 1st IFTA quarterly tax due date and the 3rd quarter IFTA deadline. You still need to file IFTA even if you purchased no fuel and did not drive your truck this quarter.

If you still haven’t filed your 3rd quarter IFTA report, you’ll need a quick solution.
