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.
