The International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) is an agreement between all 48 contiguous states and 10 Canadian provinces. IFTA has a goal to simplify the reporting of all fuel use taxes by commercial motor carriers. It enables participating jurisdictions to cooperate in the collection and administration of motor fuel taxes.
IFTA Plus is an online IFTA fuel tax software service that allows to you quickly, easily and accurately prepare and file your state IFTA return.
There are many reasons our customers are incredibly loyal to IFTA Plus. First of all, we prepare your actual state return for you. Most other IFTA software programs give you a generic report which requires you to transfer by hand to your state return. Second, there is never anything to update, such as IFTA rates. Third, we have several promotional programs that can earn you free credit or cash. Fourth, we provide Driver Qualification software that helps you maintain the other parts of your business.
IFTA Connect is a promotion we offer that allows you to distribute coupons with a promotion code specific to your company. When another company uses your promo code during checkout, they save money and you earn $5 cash. Then, every future quarter they file a return with us, you continue to earn an additional $5, up to $750 per quarter. Click to read more
You will need to collect your miles driven and fuel purchases for the entire quarter (for example, October 1st thru December 31st). Some companies have fuel reports and some have fuel receipts. Some companies have trip reports and some have mileage logs. It doesn’t matter how you have your information. IFTA Plus allows you to enter your data in any format. Additionally, IFTA Plus can gather your employee and vehicle information. This is optional but allows you to have better reporting on miles driven per driver and per vehicle.
If you are a small carrier who travels in 10 – 20 states, it should take you about 15 minutes, once you have all your miles and gallons. For example, if you have miles driven and gallons purchased already totaled by state, and you only traveled in 10 or 12 states, then you can easily be complete in 5 minutes. If you are a new user to IFTA Plus, registration will take only a few minutes.
No. IFTA Plus assumes all fuel types are Diesel. If there is enough demand, we will add support for more fuel types – biodiesel, E85, E90, A55 for example.
Absolutely. We can prepare any quarters since Q1 2007. Make sure you have your miles and gallons collected for the quarter you wish to file. For more information, look at our late filing page.
Actually, yes! For $30 per quarter, if you have 1-2 trucks, your state’s return is prepared for you! If you have more trucks it’s only a few more dollars a truck. That’s all there is to it. Additional discounts are available if you want to sign up for a year. Check out our pricing page for the latest details on all our products.
IFTA Plus generates your return for the base IFTA jurisdiction where your business is located. Once your data is entered, you will pay the fee, then print and sign your return. A cover sheet comes with your return containing easy instructions on how to file. We also offer New York Highway Use Tax and Kentucky Weight Distance form preparation if you have miles in either New York or Kentucky.
No. There are no hidden fees. And this is very simple…you enter your data, pay $30 and print your return. We will only charge you for what you order and if you choose more than one filing option, every charge is clearly outlined for you – prior to payment.
If you have an IFTA balance, you will be responsible for submitting a check along with the completed state IFTA form. If there is a credit balance, then you will either have that applied to your next quarter or you will receive a check for the balance. You indicate that preference right on the return. Our cover sheet will explain that in more detail when you print the return.
If you have a refund, your Balance Due will be negative and will be refunded to you after you file your return.
IFTA Plus protects your financial information with industry-leading security and fraud prevention systems. IFTA Plus uses Stripe, the most trusted name in online payment processing, to process all credit card transactions. When you use Stripe, your financial information is not shared with IFTA Plus.
Your credit card number is not stored on any computer within IFTA Plus.
You need an IFTA license if you travel in two or more member jurisdictions, and if your vehicle either weighs more than 26,000 pounds, OR has three or more axles, regardless of weight.
No. IFTA Plus will calculate all of your mileage and fuel purchase data and prepare your state form. Because there are times when you will owe a balance to your base jurisdiction, you are required to actually file and sign your return. If you need help, you can work with an IFTA compliance specialist.
It is a lot easier than you think. You print the completed tax documents we prepare for you. Sign the return and mail it in. That’s it!
IFTA Plus works for every state in the United States.
Many states do not yet allow online filing, though some do. Of the states that do offer online IFTA filing services, most assume you have already performed the state calculations. The state forms only give you the ability to enter your mileage in it’s aggregated form. IFTA Plus is designed to make calculating and preparing your IFTA return painless. Our clients have told us that other filing services are difficult to use, lost their data, or simply didn’t work quickly enough to get their taxes done.
IFTA Plus does not currently support Canada or Mexico based companies.
IFTA Plus now supports miles both in Canadian and Mexico.
Yes. IFTA Plus assumes all miles in NY are loaded (laden) miles and assumes the largest vehicle weight. These provide the most conservative calculations, and for carriers with a small number of miles in NY, usually do not significantly alter your total IFTA amount. The short answer is yes, IFTA Plus will prepare that for you. Find more information on preparing your New York Highway Use Tax (HUT) here
