Fuel Tax Reporting with or without ELDs
When the ELDs came into the picture in 2017 the IFTA rules and regulations did not change. After 2 years of carriers working with the ELDs the ELD software still has glitches and is not a reliable source for your IFTA and mileage tax reports.
The ELDs primary job it to track hours of service. Period. However, many ELDs are trying to incorporate IFTA in their systems. There are a few pieces missing that could be detrimental to an audit.
I've yet to see an ELD have the capability to print out a trip sheet as required by the IFTA agencies. Especially if you're in the State of Texas you are REQUIRED to complete a trip sheet or have capable software to do this function.
Trip sheets include:
THEN the ending odometer is then transferred to the next trip sheet as the beginning odometer. The purpose of this trip sheet is to be able to track each mile, state by state, easily and in an organized fashion. There should be no gap miles. Gap miles cause your MPG to lower which dominoes into paying higher fuel taxes.
We have been filing fuel taxes for over 25 years and know this process inside and out.
Don't get left with a hefty fine because you relied on your ELD to do a job it was not meant for. Sign up today and we'll help you sort out all of your mileage and fuel receipts/fuel card statements.
The cost is a flat fee of $60 per month per truck. **
Here's what you do each month: Send us your logs by truck or handwritten trip sheets along with your monthly fuel card statement or individual fuel receipts by the 7th of each month.
Here's what will we do each month: Enter your data into our system, pre-audit each trip, to ensure correct data is filed with the states each quarter. Make sure there are no gap miles.
Plus...we can also help set you up with a fuel card to save 20 cents per gallon at the pump. That will more than pay for this service and give you the peace of mind you are in compliance with the IFTA agencies.
We will also file your biennial reports [$75 value] when they come due and provide you with our Master Compliance online course bundle [valued at $360/year]
** State taxes due will be an extra fee and not included in our monthly service fee.
