What is IFTA?
IFTA is the International Fuel Tax Agreement. Through IFTA, member jurisdictions act cooperatively to collect and administer taxes related to motor fuel usage.
The purpose of IFTA is to establish and maintain the concept of one fuel use license for interstate carriers and one administering base jurisdiction for each license holder. An IFTA license allows a taxpayer to file one tax report that covers all member jurisdictions.
