IFTA stands for International Fuel Tax Agreement. It is an agreement between the lower 48 states of the United States and the Canadian provinces, to simplify the reporting of fuel use by motor carriers that operate in more than one jurisdiction. Alaska, Hawaii, and the Canadian territories do not participate.
An operating carrier with IFTA receives an IFTA license and one decal for each qualifying vehicle it operates. The carrier files a quarterly fuel tax report. This report is used to determine the net tax or refund due and to redistribute taxes from collecting states to states that it is due. A carrier must also purchase IFTA stickers for the truck each year. The sticker fees and deadlines for renewals vary by state.
IFTA is required for the following vehicles traveling interstate:
- All Vehicles over 26,000 lbs; and/or
- Having three or more axles regardless of weight
