IFTA stands for International Fuel Tax Agreement, and it is the type of fuel tax account you need if you have a rig that drives out of Indiana to other places. This tax primarily pays for road and bridge repairs that local and state roads need. Motor carriers from all states (and Canada, too!) must register for IFTA if they leave their home base (Base Jurisdiction-IFTA), which in this case is Indiana.

Some vehicles are not required to register for IFTA. These include personal-use RVs (motor homes, campers, and travel trailers) and vehicles that are still being driven by the dealer on their dealer plates.
