Filing IFTA fuel taxes is all about keeping accurate records. Do you have all your fuel receipts? Do your drivers’ trip sheets cover every mile for all distance traveled? Do you know how many miles were driven in each state or province? And it’s not just about data collection: You also have to hang onto all those records for at least four years.

This meant that they were stuck paying the high prices for diesel and there were very few options to keep that cost down.

Savvy owner-operators know there are ways to save money on the fuel they buy, but also on the fuel taxes they pay. Understanding your carrier’s fuel tax policy is the key, so you can buy diesel in the least expensive states for you.
