The term “IFTA” refers to the collaborative agreement formed between the 48 states of the United States and 10 provinces in Canada. This agreement allows inter-jurisdictional carriers to declare and pay taxes for the fuel in their trucks to consume across states using a single fuel tax license.
Prior to this, however, providers of trucking services in Illinois and the rest of the states were required to secure fuel permits from every single state they entered.
For businessmen and employees alike, that was a huge waste of time.
If your business is based in a member state — as mentioned in the IFTA agreement — and is operating across two or more member jurisdictions, you will need an IFTA license.
Other qualified motor vehicles include:
- Any vehicle with two axles and a gross vehicle weight of over 11,797 kilograms or 26,000 pounds
- A vehicle of any weight but with three or more axles
- A vehicle that exceeds 11,797 kilograms or 26,000 pounds
