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.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

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

Effective Date:(mm/dd/yyyy): 04/01/1996

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.

I was told mass and ny were exempt from IFTA so I put actual miles on IFTA and in taxable miles column I wrote in thruway miles or turnpike miles. IFTA return came back to me corrected. I had to pay ny miles. That was 3rd qt 2011.

New York Thruway miles are not subject to IFTA and possibly Mass Pike. You would need to call to make sure. All others are subject to IFTA, to the best of my knowledge.

This is true for what I remember, it's been 10 years since I ran in those states but they were non-taxable miles back then. I thought MA was going to change, but not sure.

I also live in NY. The IFTA office told me that only mass pike was the only toll road that is non IFTA

I'm thinking of the TMT (ton miles tax) when it comes to the NY Thruway. Sorry!
