  • Fuel expense accounting

    Fuel is the highest cost for owner-operators, and it increases your operational costs. As a result, you lose money. At the same time, it’s not easy to keep track of all the fuel taxes in different states. It’s critical to prioritize the routes, figure out the cost per mile, and keep track of fuel costs because it will allow us to forecast fuel expenses and implement fuel-cutting strategies. Our expert will take care of it for you, and everything will be in your annual tax report.

Service fee: $20 per week for 1 truck

TAXES

A dedicated tax preparer will guide you as an owner-operator through the entire process and filing procedure at the end of the year. Our tax specialists work across all of the states.

  • Heavy Vehicle Use Tax

    The annual taxable period begins on July 1 of the current year and ends on June 30 of the following year. For vehicles that are in use at the beginning of the tax period, your form 2290 filing deadline is August 31, 2021. Taxes on the full tax period must be filed and paid in advance.

  • IFTA

    Under IFTA, you are required to file quarterly fuel tax returns with your base jurisdiction, showing all miles traveled and all fuel consumed during the quarter by qualified vehicles, including the miles traveled and fuel consumed in each IFTA jurisdiction. The amounts listed for each jurisdiction on the report are used to calculate a net balance. Any additional tax due is remitted to the base jurisdiction, or a credit or refund is issued.

  • Permits

    Carriers that operate within Kentucky, New Mexico, New York, and/or Oregon may be subject to additional state permits. The requirements and monthly fees are different for each state. All permit account holders must file a Quarterly Return where the tax amount is calculated based on miles traveled during the reporting period. The filing process varies by state. Returns are required to be filed even if no mileage was accrued. Failure to file timely may result in late fees and penalties.
