IFTA Late Filing Penalties: Get Your Account Back in Good Standing!

The April 30th filing deadline has officially passed!

Were you able to file on time? If your first quarter IFTA, NM Weight-Distance, Oregon Weight-Mile, NY HUT, or KYU returns are late, Truck Services of North America is here to rescue you!

But we can’t help unless you give us a call, so get ready to drop what you’re doing and pick up the phone (unless of course, you’re reading this on your phone).

The sooner you act, the lower the penalties you will face. What penalties exactly? Let’s have a look.

Late IFTA Filing Penalties

You must file your return AND pay all of the taxes due by the deadline date, or your return is considered late and subject to these penalties:

  • You must pay the greater of $50 or 10% of the net tax due to all member jurisdictions.
  • Additionally, interest accrues on the tax you owe at a rate of 1% per month.
  • Your jurisdiction will assess interest on a monthly basis, so even if you’re only 1 or 2 days late, the full 1% interest will be applied. It is not prorated. 

Get Back on Track

That’s the bad news. But the good news is that TSNAmerica has IFTA Filing Services that can get even the latest of late filers back on track.
