Simply put, the IFTA works as a “pay numbers now or later” system. When commercial vehicles purchase fuel, all taxes paid on fuel are credited to the licensee`s account. At the end of the business quarter, the licensee finalizes his fuel tax return, lists all miles flowed in all participating countries and lists all gallons purchased. Then, the average fuel power is applied to miles travelled to determine each country`s tax debt.
