Massachusetts IFTA Form

Massachusetts or otherwise known as “The Bay State” rests in the Northeastern U.S. and is home to nearly 7 million people. Regarding IFTA, to receive a license you must submit an application to the Massachusetts Department of Revenue. Currently there is an an $8 charge for each set of IFTA decals, you need one set for each qualified vehicle.


State Requirements IFTA Massachusetts Licensing


Massachusetts is one of 48 states in the U.S. to have joined the International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA).  The agreement was created to simplify reporting and disbursing quarterly fuel use taxes among member jurisdictions.  Motor carriers who are based in this state and operate in one or more member jurisdictions will need to apply for an IFTA Massachusetts license.  Before applying for your IFTA credentials, you need to know if your vehicle(s) qualifies. The base jurisdiction and vehicle IFTA requirements are listed here.

How To Get IFTA Stickers


The Massachusetts Department of Revenue makes it easy to register online.  If you would prefer not to file electronically, the forms can be printed and submitted by mail.

According to the IFTA manual, the benefits of having an IFTA license include one application, one set of credentials, and one quarterly tax return.  This system is much simpler than in the past when operators were required to obtain stickers and pay taxes in each state on their route. The new method helps truckers save time and money and eliminates a great deal of paperwork.

The IFTA requires motor carriers to file quarterly fuel use tax returns.  Once you have received your license your Fuel Use Tax Return will be mailed 30 days prior to the due date.The due dates 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 submit the quarterly reports on time can result in a penalty of 10% of the total taxes owed, or $50, whichever is more.  The DOR will mail the forms to you 30 days prior to the due date.


Renewing Your Massachusetts IFTA License


Massachusetts IFTA licenses are issued for one year, expiring on December 31st.  It is highly recommended that you file for renewal before November 30 to avoid any delays. However,  operators who do not have current IFTA credentials can apply for a temporary IFTA permit for the intended state of travel.  

Your license will not be renewed if you are delinquent on any IFTA quarterly fuel use taxes.  

After receiving your license, make sure to carry a copy in each vehicle that you operate.  Additionally, you will receive two IFTA decal stickers for each registered vehicle. The IFTA stickers must be permanently affixed to the outside of the cab, one on each side.  

If you’re like most busy truckers, these rules and deadlines can be confusing and difficult to remember.  No one wants to miss the IFTA due dates and pay penalties or spend time off the road. But, fortunately, there is a way to ensure that you always meet all IFTA sticker requirements.
