IFTA reports can be generated in TruckLogics for each quarter based on the miles your vehicles traveled and the fuel-ups on the trips. To generate an IFTA report, you can use the Distance and Fuel data from TruckLogics, Motive, or ExpressTruckTax. 

As a new user, you can create a TruckLogics account and choose your role as a Service Provider or a Business Owner. Select the plan category as Generate IFTA Report Only or Complete Trucking Management.

Enter your business information, including your business name, business address, country, base jurisdiction, IFTA account number, etc.

Here’s how to generate an IFTA report for a quarter:

Step 1: 

Go to the ‘IFTA’ tab. In IFTA Dashboard, you can find the basic Business Details, IFTA Settings, and the Number of Qualified IFTA Trucks. You can always ‘Edit’ the Business Information and ‘IFTA Settings’

Note that there should be at least one Qualified IFTA Trucks to generate an IFTA report. 

Step 2: 

Click ‘Start Return’ on the quarter for which you need to generate the IFTA report. 

Step 3: 

There are three ways to include the trucks for IFTA Report Generation. 

  • Choose the trucks from the list in the Truck List screen to include for IFTA report generation. You can choose any number of trucks from the list. 

  • Click ‘Import from Motive’ by linking to your Motive account to import more vehicle data for IFTA report generation.

  • Upload Data in Bulk - The bulk Upload feature allows you to upload a large volume of data at one time using the default TruckLogics template.

The total IFTA amount and the penalties will be calculated and displayed.  

Step 8: 

The summary report will be displayed with the Basic business details, IFTA Details, and IFTA Tax summary calculation. Click ‘Next’ to check for errors.

Step 9: 

If there are any errors in IFTA details, they will be displayed on the audit screen. You might need to review your trip sheet and fuel up entries if there are warnings or error warnings. If no error, then click ‘Next’ to generate an IFTA report.

Step 10:
