International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA)

July 1 begins the filing period for 2​Q23 KYU and IFTA.  Be sure to file the appropriate return(s) in July to avoid a $500 revocation penalty.​
​​​The International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) is a fuel consumption tax agreement among states and Canadian provinces to simplify the reporting of fuel used by interstate/inter-jurisdictional motor carriers. Upon application, the carrier’s base jurisdiction will issue credentials, allowing the carrier​ to travel in all IFTA member jurisdictions. 
Kentucky carriers traveling in non-IFTA jurisdictions must continue to follow the procedures and file the reports required by the statutes and regulations of those non-IFTA jurisdictions. Carriers from non-IFTA jurisdictions must likewise comply with Kentucky statutes and regulations​
If you are not based in Kentucky, you will not have a Kentucky IFTA license; you will have a KYU license.  Please refer to the Kentucky Weight Distance Page to file KYU taxes.​​​


​IFTA license holders can also maintain IFTA licenses, decals and amend IFTA returns through the Motor Carrier Connect.
