What's New


    In 2015, you will no longer be able to file paper IFTA tax returns. This means that the IFTA tax return that is due on January 31, 2015 (which covers the October, November and December 2014 reporting period) MUST BE ELECTRONICALLY FILED using Michigan's new IFTA tax return processing system. For more information, see the Notices below:

  • IFTA Record Keeping Requirements:

    Licensed IFTA carriers are required by the IFTA Agreement and Michigan Motor Carrier Statute to keep vehicle records for 4 years from the due date of the return or the date the return was filed, whichever is later. Although DOT/FMCSA only requires 6 months of record keeping, you must maintain your fuel and mileage records for IFTA and IRP purposes for a minimum of 4 years.

Filing Deadlines
  • IFTA fuel tax reports are due on the last day of the month following the close of the calendar quarter for which the report is due.
    Filing Period Due Date
    First Quarter April 30th
    Second Quarter July 31st
    Third Quarter October 31st
    Fourth Quarter January 31st
