Get Your IFTA Form Mailed To Your Base Jurisdictions By 31st October

So filers, are you set to go with your IFTA filing? Well, we are here to remind you about the IFTA 3rd quarter due date that is falling on 31st of October 2014. So truckers, owner operators and qualified motor carriers who commute through the 48 jurisdictions with their IFTA license and a decal on their truck are required to file and pay their dues to their base jurisdiction on or before the due date.

The very first question among the lot is who should file.

If you are an interstate motor carrier operator, qualified as motor vehicle and at least traveled 2 member jurisdictions among the 48 contiguous states of the US and 10 Canadian provinces, should file International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA). It is mandatory to hold an IFTA license and decals issued by their base jurisdiction.

So if you have traveled through any of the jurisdictions during this quarter of the year, i.e. July-September, you are liable to report IFTA. And if you don’t have no miles covered in any of the jurisdiction, you are liable to file IFTA checking on “No Operations” in your IFTA form.

What Are The Documents Required To File IFTA?

Well, while getting ready for filing IFTA, the following are the documents required to file and pay your dues.

  • Total miles, taxable and nontaxable, traveled by the licensee’s qualified motor vehicles in all jurisdictions, IFTA and non-IFTA, including trip permit miles
  • Total gallons of fuel consumed, taxable and nontaxable
  • Total miles and taxable miles traveled in each member jurisdiction
  • Taxable gallons consumed in each member jurisdiction
  • Tax-paid gallons purchased in each member jurisdiction and
  • Current tax rates for each member jurisdiction.

IFTA tax calculations are done based on the gallons you have used and the miles you have covered by the end of the fiscal quarter and the payment should be filed to the base jurisdiction by October 31st for the third quarter.
