Since the governments across the world are adopting far more disciplinary approach than usual, legal compliance has become a part and parcel in every walk of life. Similarly, when it comes to transportation & fleet management, this approach has persuaded the authorities to exercise a better control on trucking and fuel taxation too.

While Alaska, the District of Columbia, and Hawaii are exempt from this requirement, they are present across Canada. A quarterly tax report is sent by IFTA after gathering all the fuel information.

  • Only Inter-State Fuel Consumption Has To Be Reported

Under the IFTA, carriers are simply required to inform their base state of their interjurisdictional fuel usage. The state will take care of processing fuel tax returns, collecting taxes on net fuel usage, and distributing the money to all other states. Through routine audits, the base state is also in charge of enforcing compliance.


  • There are penalties too for non-compliance

A carrier has 30 days to fulfill the criteria after failing to submit a quarterly IFTA return before their license is suspended. Penalties for late payments are $50 or 10% of the entire amount owed in taxes, whatever is superior.
