Manitoba IFTA Information

Manitoba is a Canadian prairie province that currently home to 1.2 million people. In order to obtain an IFTA license in Manitoba you must submit a completed application to the Taxation Division of Manitoba to receive your credentials. There is an annual license fee of $65.00 and an additional $5.00 for each set of decals. Each qualified vehicle is required to have one set of decals.

Requirements for IFTA Manitoba Licensing


Now that you’ve earned your CPL you’re ready to get behind the wheel and start making money.  Congratulations on your new venture! Before you get started, you need to be familiar with the IFTA Manitoba rules and regulations.  If you plan to claim Manitoba as your base jurisdiction, the following conditions must be met:

  1. Your business is based in Manitoba and all operational controls and records are maintained in and can be made available to the province.
  2. You operate a qualified vehicle and accrue mileage in Manitoba and at least one other IFTA jurisdiction.

IFTA defines a qualified motor vehicle as one that is designed, used, and maintained for transporting persons or property.  The vehicle qualifies for IFTA permits if it has two axles and a GVW exceeding 26,000 pounds, or has three axles regardless of weight, or is used in combination when the combined GVW exceeds 26,000 pounds.

Some jurisdictions allow exemptions regarding fuel purchases and usage.  For instance, private roads, toll roads, or Indian reservations are a few.  Exemptions may also include type of fuel, temporary permits, or vehicle types.  More about exemptions can be found here.

When you receive your IFTA decals and license, you’ll be required to file quarterly fuel use tax reports. A copy of the license must be carried in the cab of each qualified motor vehicle.  Also, an IFTA decal should be displayed on each side of the cab’s exterior.

The quarterly reporting process has been streamlined by the IFTA.  You’ll only need to submit one report each quarter to your base jurisdiction who will distribute the taxes to the provinces/states on your route.  To avoid any fines or penalties you’ll need to submit the fuel tax report before the due dates shown below:


Quarterly IFTA Due Dates

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

If you are delinquent in filing or paying IFTA fuel use taxes, a fine of 10% of the tax liability or $50, whichever is greater, will have to be paid. Unless you are up-to-date with all IFTA taxes, your license cannot be renewed.


Renewing Your IFTA Manitoba License


An IFTA Manitoba license is issued for one year, expiring on December 31st.  To prevent any delays in receiving the renewal, you need to submit your application before November 30th.  However, you can request an extension if you are in compliance with all IFTA taxes. If you are granted an extension, you’ll have until March 1st to display the current IFTA decals.

Although the IFTA was created to simplify the process of reporting fuel use, it can still be a daunting task.  If you are concerned about missing an IFTA deadline or spending hours at a time doing paperwork, TruckingOffice has a solution.
