Each qualified vehicle operating in IFTA jurisdictions is required to have one set of decals.
State Requirements Wyoming IFTA Licensing
The International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) was created to streamline the process of collecting and disbursing interstate fuel use taxes. An IFTA license offers many benefits to truckers, beyond just a simpler process. For example, truckers will need only one license and one set of IFTA decals to travel between member jurisdictions. Also, they will only need to file one quarterly fuel tax report.
To determine whether Wyoming is your base jurisdiction you must meet the following IFTA requirements:
- Your business is based in and operates from Wyoming and least one other IFTA jurisdiction.
- All official operations and records are maintained in Wyoming or can be made available here.
- You operate one or more qualified vehicles that accrue mileage on Wyoming highways.
Additionally, your vehicle(s) will need to qualify before applying for an IFTA license. You are required to obtain an IFTA license if your vehicle is designed for the transport of persons or products and has:
- Two axles and a GVW or registered GVW exceeding 26,000 pounds or;
- Three or more axles regardless of weight or;
- A combination of GVW over 26,000 pounds.
Once your application is approved, you will receive one IFTA license and two IFTA decals. Be sure to keep a copy of the license in each vehicle and display the IFTA decals on the rear exterior of each side of the cab(s). The IFTA also requires you to keep track of all fuel expenses in each jurisdiction on your route, as well as mileage accrued. This information is to be used when filing the quarterly fuel use taxes with your base jurisdiction.
Failure to file the IFTA fuel tax before the due date can incur penalties of up to 10% of the amount owed, or $50, whichever is greater. Non-compliance with quarterly taxes may prevent the renewal of your IFTA license.
