IFTA Plus Discontinues Utah IFTA Fuel Tax Preparation

As of 1/20/2010, IFTA Plus is discontinuing our Utah IFTA preparation because of new Utah state regulations requiring all companies to file fuel tax returns using their online website.  All of our existing Utah companies will be receiving a full refund for any pre-paid quarters.

Utah now joins Minnesota in adopting regulations that act solely in the State’s best interest without regard for existing practices, tools and vendors of the transportation industry.

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!

Minnesota Fuel Tax Return Discontinued

This morning we received the following notice from the state of Minnesota.


RE: 3rd Qtr Tax Return filing                            

Dear Sir or Madam:

Beginning first quarter 2006, all carriers were notified that they must use the form we provide each quarter.  This notification is sent as a reminder every year at time of renewal.  The Minnesota Statutes allows the Commission of Public Safety to require Minnesota Motor Carriers to file the appropriate form.  Your form is not an appropriate form.  It will not be accepted.  

If this form is used in place of the one we provide, we will return it to the carrier.  If the subsequent return is filed after the due date, a late penalty and interest will apply.  The forms provided by the Minnesota Prorate office are the official tax returns accepted. 

If you have any questions regarding this notice, please call as soon as possible at (651) 205 – 4110.


Sandra J. Christenson

Lead IFTA Auditor – MN Prorate


We are immediately stopping our Minnesota IFTA fuel tax return preparation service until this issue is sorted out with the state.  If your MN return was rejected, contact us directly and we will refund your $25.
