    if you do 15000 miles in Arizona then ...Arizona has 0.26 tax rate so you multiple 15000 * 0.26 = 3900 and divide that by you MPG ..so 3900 / say 7 = 557 ...how can you pay half of that in IFTA ?

    I did not pay any tax at Pilot. each of my receipts says "sales tax" = $0..so I cannot move anything to next column

    Sales tax is not applied to Fuel, fuel tax is included in the pump price and IS considered TAX Paid; sales tax on top is double taxation.

    The fuel tax 3rd quarter was 39.5 cents per gal already paid!

    That's how IFTA works, you get credit for fuel bought at the pump at the state tax rate whild running up debits at thestate tax rate where you didn't buy fuel and you even it up every quarter..

    i think i figured it out thanks your guidance. I did not put how many gallons I bought in each state. that's column "I". so now once I looked at my receipts and put how many gallons I bought in each state, the form looks like that - attached files. it is more comparable to how much someone pays who makes 25k miles a quarter ...thnx

    Still trying to figure out how you did 25,000 miles in a quarter on 2,000 gallons of fuel. That's 12.5 miles per gallon, and IFTA will flag you if you turn in a report with that high of a mpg. My first couple of IFTA reports I had 7.8 mpg and their system flagged me and required me to call their service center before I could continue. I guess they hadn't taken into account the newer fuel efficient trucks, but 12.5 mpg is too high.

    Much better, and realistic for the small numbers

    I’m trying to go off memory, sometimes my memory is a little fuzzy.
    When I get back home I’ll look at the report
