2013 IFTA, NY HUT & KYU 3rd Quarter Filing Deadline Approaching!

The 3rd Quarter Filing Period for IFTA (International Fuel Tax Agreement), KYU (Kentucky Use Tax), New Mexico Weight Distance Tax, and NY HUT (New York Highway Use Tax) is now open. We want to remind you that the deadline for filing is October 31, 2013 and we encourage you not to wait until the last minute to file.

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.

The purpose of IFTA is to establish and maintain the concept of one fuel use license and one administering base jurisdiction for each license holder (licensee). Under IFTA, you only have to report to one state and the state allocate the fuel tax payments.  For more details see

The fuel taxes are due quarterly and October 31st is the deadline to file for the 3rd quarter. (July, August and September).

What you need to file:
  • Mileage log 
  • Fuel Receipts 
  • Any IFTA correspondences pertaining to your account (if applicable)
Late Filing or Not Filing could result in the following:
  • IFTA filing (late fee) plus interest (if applicable) 
  • Possible suspension of IFTA license 
  • Possibility of having IRP/Apportioned Plate account affected 
  • Citation from DOT if caught operating on a delinquent and or suspending IFTA license 
  • Threat of having your entire transport operation shut down
The IFTA filing process may be vary slightly depending on your base jurisdiction state.  If you operate in Kentucky, New Mexico, New York and/or Oregon, you may be required to have additional permits and file quarterly returns.
