How Much Time Wasted on Fuel Tax

HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU WASTE ON FUEL TAX?

ONE OF THE TRUCKING INDUSTRY’S MOST DREADED JOBS

Nobody likes doing company fuel tax and preparing IFTA reports. It’s takes forever, it’s an extremely tedious job, and when your company doubles in size, it means you’ll have double the paperwork. For even small to medium sized trucking businesses, fuel tax can often take 40+ hours of someone’s time – every single quarter.

On top of all that, it needs to be done right. A few small mistakes can leave your company on the hook for serious fines, penalties, and/or interest payments. If you’ve been in the industry for a while, you have probably heard stories about failed audits and what a huge problem they can be for the unfortunate carriers. Many people don’t realize that around 75% of IFTA audits result in a penalty of some kind.

Having to double-check your fuel tax calculations makes an already tiresome and stressful job take even longer.

It’s almost 2020… Haven’t we figured out a better way to do this yet?

Actually, we have.

DOUBLED OUR BUSINESS & REDUCED TEDIOUS IFTA REPORTS “It makes our IFTA reporting so much simpler. You don’t have to worry about calculating all the different gallons purchased in different states. All of that is already accumulating in the background, so when it comes time to run our IFTA report, it makes it a breeze.” Read Full Review

THIS IS HOW EASY IT COULD BE FOR YOU:
  1. With a few simple clicks, bring mileage information from your mileage tracking or route planning systems, directly over to a fuel tax system.
  2. Download fuel purchase records from your fuel card supplier and import into that same fuel tax system.
  3. That’s it.

With this info in the system, every calculation can be made and every report created, including jurisdictional miles and taxes owing/owed per truck. IFTA reports, properly formatted, are just a click or two away.

Why would you want to work twice as hard? If you already plan routes, dispatch trucks, and record that somewhere, you shouldn’t have to manually type that same information again, into another program.
