In your IFTA tax return, you show how much taxable fuel you bought and how far you travelled in each country. They will be weighed against the amounts due in other jurisdictions. If the net result is underpayment, send a payment to Ontario. If the net result is an overpayment, you will receive a refund from Ontario. Note: Licensed vehicles with IFTA credentials, including farm-registered vehicles, may only use single fuel. The use of marked fuel is not permitted. Your renewal license and stickers are valid and can be displayed from November 2020. Your license and decals for the current year remain valid and can be posted until February 28, 2021.

If your account is active and in good condition, your application will be automatically approved at the time of submission. You can print a copy of your IFTA license and a 30-day temporary sticker authorization for each qualified vehicle in your application.

If you are transporting goods for another person, a contract may make the carrier, not the owner of the vehicle, responsible for inter-judicial notification and payment of fuel taxes. The contract must be identified: the agreement allows registered interjurisdictional carriers to obtain a licence issued by their main jurisdiction to declare and pay fuel taxes to a single jurisdiction.
