Maryland(MD) IFTA Fuel Taxes
Who Is Required To Register?
A qualified motor vehicle is a motor vehicle used, designed, or maintained for transportation of persons or property having:
- Two axles and a gross vehicle weight or registered gross vehicle weight exceeding 26,000 pounds or 11,797 kilograms; or
- Having three or more axles regardless of weight; or
- Is used in combination, when the weight of such combination exceeds 26,000 pounds, or 11,797 kilograms gross vehicle or registered gross vehicle weight.
Qualified Motor Vehicle does not include recreational vehicles unless they are used in conjunction with any business endeavor. Recreational vehicles are vehicles such as motor homes, pickup trucks with attached campers and buses when used exclusively for personal pleasure by an individual.
You will need to complete an application form and submit it to the Comptroller of Maryland or you can apply online. Incomplete applications will be returned, which will delay processing. You should receive them within 5-7 business days. There is no decal fee. You will need one set per qualified vehicle.
Renewal can be done by mail or in person or online. There is no decal fee.
A quarterly IFTA return must be filed by the due date:
|Tax Return Reporting Quarters||Due Date|
|January - March||April 30|
|April - June||July 31|
|July - September||October 31|
|October - December||January 31|
* If the due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday, the next business day is considered the tax reporting filing due date.
Note: A quarterly fuel tax return must be filed even if the no fuel was used.
There is a late penalty of $50 or 10% of the net tax liability, whichever is greater. Interest is computed on all delinquent taxes dues each jurisdiction at a rate of .4167% per month. Even if you have a net refund, interest still applies to each jurisdiction for any underpayment of fuels use tax to that jurisdiction and is calculated beginning the day after the due date of the return for each month, or fraction of a month, until paid.
