IFTA account set up:

According to Wikipedia, The International Fuel Tax Agreement (or IFTA) is an agreement between the lower 48 states of the United States and the Canadian provinces, to simplify the reporting of fuel use by motor carriers that operate in more than one jurisdiction. Alaska, Hawaii, and District of Columbia do not participate. An operating carrier with IFTA receives an IFTA license and two decals for each qualifying vehicle it operates. The carrier files a quarterly fuel tax report. This report is used to determine the net tax or refund due and to redistribute taxes from collecting states to states that it is due.

This tax is required for motor vehicles used, designed, or maintained for transportation of persons or property and:

  • Having two axles and a gross vehicle weight rating or registered gross vehicle weight in excess of 26,000 pounds, and/or
  • Having three or more axles regardless of weight, and/or
  • Is used in combination, when the weight of such combination exceeds 26,000 pounds gross vehicle or registered gross vehicle weight

  • When trucks or combinations have two axles and are at or under 26,000 pounds gross weight or registered gross weight, IFTA does not apply.

  • Each jurisdiction determines which types of fuel are considered special fuels, and sets the tax rate for each type of special fuel. IFTA provides a uniform administration of motor fuel tax collection and laws on apportioned vehicles that travel in one or more of the member jurisdiction.

    Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) :

    Any Vehicle registered with gross weight of 55,000 pound or over is require to pay Federal highway use tax (2290). This tax is paid by inter-state and intra-state registered vehicles. Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) Form 2290 filing started in late 90’s and was discovered by The American Association of State Highways Official because heavy trucks caused most of the damage. Several reports stated that around 160,000 times more than what a car can cause damage on roads is contributed by trucks. We can file your highway road tax (2290) on time to avoid IRS penalty. Customer satisfaction is our goal.

    The mileage use limit is a key factor that determines whether a vehicle should be “suspended” from the HVUT 2290 tax or not.

  • Agricultural vehicles can be driven on the highways for up to 7500 miles without being taxed.
  • Non-agricultural vehicles can be driven on the highways for up to 5000 miles without being taxed
  • As long as a vehicle doesn’t exceed these mileage limits, the vehicle is “suspended” from 2290 HVUT taxes, but tax(2290) needs to be reported.
