So without further ado, let’s get onto some useful filing tips for those of you that like to file at the last minute!

IFTA Tip #1: Have Your Mileage Ready

The first (and also the most important) thing you’ll need is your mileage information on hand and organized. This should include the total taxable miles you traveled in each participating IFTA jurisdiction.

But what if you don’t know what taxable miles are??

That’s no problem, a lot of folks don’t! If you have any questions about your mileage, just check out this helpful blog on taxable and non-taxable IFTA miles.

IFTA Tip #2: Have Fuel Reports and Receipts

In addition to your mileage information, you’ll also need to be sure that you have all of your fuel information. You’ll need to have the:

  • Address of each fuel purchase 
  • Type of fuel purchased 
  • Amount of fuel purchased 
  • Total sale amount 

IFTA Tip #3: Don’t File IFTA (Yourself)

The third and most useful tip? Don’t file IFTA -- that is, by yourself anyway.

That’s right, if you need to file at the last minute, what’s easier than having someone do it for you? Exactly.
