Why Choose IFTA Plus?

IFTA Plus is the IFTA reporting tool of choice for over 2000 small to mid size trucking companies.  Our customers have come to rely upon our ease of use, accuracy, affordability, and great customer service.

In addition to immediate preparation of your official State IFTA fuel reports, IFTA Plus also provides fuel and mile analysis on each return, custom IFTA reports per truck, and great incentive programs.

However, did you know there is a lot more to IFTA Plus than fuel tax reporting?

IFTA Plus also provides all of its customers under 20 drivers free transportation software.  Over 4 years ago, we built an Hours of Service (HOS) calculator for local companies.   Then we added a Driver Qualification File (DQ) document tracking tool and finally a Fleet Maintenance tool.  All these powerful tools are now free to our customers, even if you don’t use us to prepare your IFTA return.

In addition, we also provide numerous reports so give you immediate information.  For example, if you prepare a single IFTA return with 3 trucks, we can give you the truck specific miles and fuel used per state, the average mpg and IFTA taxes owed per truck.  There is more information about this return here. Want a quick view into what DQ files you are missing?  We have four separate reports to help out.

If you haven’t looked at IFTA Plus in a while, check us out.  If you have, leave a comment and let us know what you think.

2 Weeks Left to Prepare your IFTA Fuel Report

Your first quarter 2009 IFTA fuel tax report is due in two weeks on April 30, 2009.

Collect all your fuel purchased and miles driven between January 1 and March 31, 2009.  Fuel and mileage needs to be itemized per state.

For example, let’s say you took a 500 mile round trip from Missouri, through Kansas and up into Nebraska.  You  originally bought 50 gallons of diesel in Missouri.  On your way back, you bought an additional 50 gallons in Nebraska.   Your fuel and mileage breakdown will look like:

MO: 250 miles, 50 gallons

KS: 100 miles

NE: 150 miles, 50 gallons

Go through your fuel or credit card receipts to get you gallons and your trip reports to get your mileage.  That’s all you need.  IFTA Plus will take care of the rest.

Safe driving!

Trucking Tips to Save Money During an IFTA Fuel Tax Filing Season

As I’m driving home late one night, I realize my home city is forcing me to waste gas.  I’m driving towards Brookside in Kansas City, its 1:30am on a Tuesday morning, there are no cars on the street.  Through a 2 mile stretch of road, there are 7 stop lights.  After cruising through 2 green lights, I have to stop at the next 4 red lights.  There was no cross traffic.  No other car ‘tripped’ a sensor.  I happened to have poor timing.

I wait for the green lights and wave goodbye to 5 minutes of wasted time and wasted gas.  We hear so many people offering ways for me as an individual to save fuel, but why don’t we hear any talk about local governments doing something to help.  Thanks to Google, my first search returns these articles http://blog.wired.com/cars/2008/05/timing-traffic.html and http://seattle.bizjournals.com/seattle/stories/2008/06/09/editorial6.html

1 article estimates updated traffic lights would save 19.3 billion gallons a year.  You can’t count on the government to fix this immediately, so what can you do now?

We here at IFTA Plus are looking at ways to help you save money. Check out our new Refer-a-Friend program allowing any company to get free IFTA fuel tax preparation through IFTA Plus’s online software tools.  For each paying customer you refer, you are credited $25, the cost of preparing a state return.  Its not much, but every bit counts these days.
