Fuel Tax - IFTA/MCFT

Businesses operating motor vehicles over 26,001 pounds in the state of Indiana must file a tax return. The tax is based on fuel usage.

Vehicles subject to this tax must be registered with the Indiana Department of Revenue's (DOR) Motor Carrier Services. Yearly renewals, decals, and license cards are required.  Quarterly tax returns must also be filed.

There are two types of vehicle fuel tax accounts:
 
1. Interstate (travel outside of Indiana, includes Canada)
  • Must register for an International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA)
2. Intrastate (Indiana travel only)
  • Must register for Motor Carrier Fuel Tax (MCFT)
