Do you own a trucking business in Washington? It’s important you register the vehicles in your fleet for IFTA filing to avoid penalty. Let us guide you further.
It is of utmost importance that you file your Washington state quarterly taxes before the due deadlines as late filing may result in a penalty of $50 or 10% of the net tax liability. Renewal applications for existing IFTA accounts can be completed in person, online, or by mail. Here, we explain the Washington IFTA decal application process in detail:
January, February, March: April 30
April, May, June: July 31
July, August, September: October 31

Factors such as total miles, total gallons, miles by jurisdiction, and gallons by jurisdiction need to be considered when filing your state fuel tax.
IFTA accounts will only be closed in good standing once all returns have been filed in addition to paying any balance due on the account.

The penalty could vary between 5 to 10 percent depending on how many days surpassed since the due date.
