Idaho IFTA Information

Idaho, or the “Gem State” is the 14th largest state in the U.S. with a population of about 1.6 million people. The best way to receive an IFTA license for qualified motor vehicles in Idaho is to apply online and submit all needed information. The current processing fee is $10 and each set of IFTA decals are 60 cents. You must have two decals on your vehicle.


State Requirements Idaho IFTA Licensing


Congratulations!  You’ve earned your CDL and are ready to get on the road.  But, like the other truckers in the U.S., you are more than a little confused about the IFTA requirements and regulations.  The first question most truckers ask is “Am I required to apply for an IFTA Idaho license?” The answer: If you are based and registered in a member state and operate in two or more member jurisdictions, you are required to apply for an IFTA permit.  

Before submitting an IFTA license application, you need to know if your vehicle qualifies.  A permit is required if your vehicle:

  1. Is designed, used, and maintained for transporting persons or property.
  2. Has two axles and a GVW or registered GVW in excess of 26,000  pounds.
  3. Has three or more axles regardless of weight.
  4. Has a combination weight that exceeds 26,000 pounds.

You’ll be required to file and pay quarterly IFTA fuel use taxes.  You’ll need to keep track of all fuel purchased and used in each jurisdiction on your route for each quarter of the year.  The Idaho IFTA fuel tax form is found here.  Due dates for filing are as follows:


Quarterly IFTA Due Dates

Q1 January – March April 30
Q2 April – June July 31
Q3 July – September October 31
Q4 October – December January 31

Failure to report on time can result in a fine of 10% of the taxes owed, or $50, whichever is greater.

Renewing Your Idaho IFTA License


IFTA licenses are issued for one year, expiring on December 31st.  It’s advised that you file well before the deadline to avoid any delays in obtaining your renewal. Drivers are given an IFTA sticker grace period from January through February that allows them time to obtain renewal IFTA decals for all qualified vehicles.  Each vehicle must display a decal on each side of the cab. Also, the state of Idaho requires truckers to maintain a copy of their original license inside each vehicle they operate. Failure to do so can result in a citation or court fines and can put your truck in park until the matter is resolved.

To avoid having your IFTA license revoked, you must stay compliant with the following:

  • File quarterly fuel use tax returns before the due date.
  • Pay taxes due in all jurisdictions.
  • Pay any audit assessments.
  • Keep IRP license up-to-date.
