Are Toll miles exempt from IFTA?
I've always included all of my toll miles on my IFTA reporting and put those miles under "taxable miles" on the IFTA form. Just recently I was audited on my IFTA and the Auditor said that there was a way to exclude any toll miles, but he wasn't sure about how to do it. He was young and new and I think he may have been confusing IFTA with NY HUT, since I'm in NY. Now I'm wondering if we can put toll miles under non taxable miles on our IFTA form.
went to the ifta website, their were two that had exemptions for turnpike miles; massachusettes and nova scotia.
of course the ifta site says to check with the state to confirm.
Turn-pike Miles: Yes
Comments: Travel on the Massachusetts Turnpike may be reported as nontaxable miles on the IFTA Quarterly Fuel Use Tax Return. In order to claim such travel miles as nontaxable the carrier must retain all Mass. Turnpike receipts & fuel invoices. Form ST-10 Use Tax Return must be filed by the 15th of April following each year which the excemption was taken on the IFTA return.
