GhostBusters has been playing on TV, so why not keep the fun rolling and make a special IFTA song parody. The Halloween season brings out our creativity. Now to the good stuff…
How are you, Trucking Nation? You all have an IFTA deadline coming up at the end of the month, October 30th to be exact, and the TruckLogics Crew would like to share some IFTA filing knowledge to help you survive the deadline.
TruckLogics provides an IFTA add-on feature with ProMiles integration that makes generating your IFTA return quick and easy. You really don’t even have to enter any information because TruckLogics tracks all your mileage for you through the trip sheets associated with your dispatches. The whole process involves a few clicks and then you’re done.
Trip Sheets Are Important!
Before getting started, make sure all your trips sheets for the 3rd quarter (July – September) are completed as TruckLogics will use these to generate you IFTA reports. Remember, you can create trip sheets super fast by using ProMiles.
How To Generate Your 3rd Quarter IFTA Return
Step 1: IFTA Dashboard To open your IFTA Dashboard, select IFTA along the top menu. There you’ll see 3rd Quarter 2015. Click “Start New Return.” If all your trip sheets are complete, you will see an accurate summary of the total miles, total gallons of fuel, and MPG for the quarter.
Step 2: IFTA TruckList Check off which vehicles you want included in the IFTA return. Mileage and fuel will pull from the trip sheets associated with the selected vehicles. You can view the trip data for each vehicle by selecting “View Log” next to each truck.
Step 3: Return Details & IFTA Tax Due After you select the vehicles you want included on your IFTA return, you will see a summary total mileage, fuel use, and MPG for the quarter. Then you will be able to add any credits or refunds to your return if applicable.
Step 4: Review & Download The final step is to review your return, and if everything is correct then you simply click “Next” to download your 3rd Quarter IFTA Return.
It really is just a few clicks and you’re done. IFTA filing is a dream with TruckLogics, and the Crew is standing by if you ever need assistance. Contact the TruckLogics Crew with any questions via phone: 704-234-6946 or email: [email protected].
If State Requires E-filing
Some states require IFTA to be e-filed, but don’t worry, TruckLogics makes that process easy too. You can quickly generate a fuel tax summary report and copy/paste it to their online form.
