International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA)
Save time. Improve accuracy. Automate your IFTA reporting process with Geotab.
What is IFTA?
The International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) is a fuel tax collection and sharing agreement among member jurisdictions in the U.S. and Canada for the redistribution of fuel taxes paid by motor carriers. In general, IFTA applies to commercial motor vehicles used for businesses purposes that travel between multiple states and/or provinces.
Carriers must apply for and obtain an IFTA licence for qualified motor vehicles that travel in more than one IFTA member jurisdiction. Qualified motor vehicles are defined by the IFTA Articles Agreement as motor vehicles which are used, designed or maintained for the transportation of persons or property. Two decals must be added onto each qualified motor vehicle once the IFTA licence is obtained. These decals must be annually renewed.
Simplify IFTA fuel tax reporting
Easily import fuel card data into MyGeotab or configure a partner fuel card integration instead of adding up receipts manually. Fuel transactions will be added to the MyGeotab IFTA report.
Increase accuracy with IFTA Automation
Reduce the risk of potential issues such as missing paperwork, errors or overpayments. Automated IFTA reporting of mileage with telematics means greater accuracy.
