Penalties For Late IFTA Filing

IFTA is the International Fuel Tax Agreement between the 48 contiguous States and 10 Canadian Provinces, where the member jurisdictions act cooperatively to administer and collect motor fuel use taxes.

Under IFTA, you are required to file Quarterly Fuel Tax Returns.  A quarterly fuel tax return must be filed even if the no fuel was used.  You submit a “zero” report. IFTA Returns are due on the last day of the month following the end of each calendar quarter. 2nd Quarter IFTA Returns are due July 31, 2013.

To avoid penalty for late filing, the tax reports must be postmarked no later than midnight on the date indicated. If the last day of the month falls on a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday, the next business day will be considered as filed timely.
