IFTA New Account Setup- INCLUDING $12 ANNUAL FEE
IFTA OR International Fuel Tax Agreement is an agreement among US states and Canadian provinces to make it easier for Interstate carriers to report and pay taxes on the motor fuels they use. The IFTA makes it easy for owners/operators to file their taxes via multiple states. If you operate in at least two or more member states or provinces, you can register and take advantage of everything this agreement has to offer. Your base jurisdiction will be able to issue one license in order to report and pay motor fuel taxes for a single jurisdiction. The license offers the ability to travel between all IFTA jurisdictions. The IFTA allows for filing one tax return per quarter with your home jurisdiction which will audit your fuel tax records.
