Frequently asked IFTA questions

How do you determine off road miles?
Are you able to set geo fencing?  
EROAD determines the off road miles from a number of sources:
  1. The IFTA, Inc. website provides the jurisdictional breakdown of allowable distance exemptions
  2. Continuous ping rate that provides the location of the vehicles
  3. Direct verification with jurisdictions
  4. Added map layer

With EROAD, you can also create geofences designated as Off Highway. When a geofence is marked as off highway you can designate with a specific road type category, such as private road, forestry road, toll road, construction site, and off road. Any geofences marked as off highway are included and accounted for in EROAD’s IFTA Electronic Tax Management and in our Off Highway Fuel Usage Report.

Only some of our trucks are on IFTA. We have bulk fueling. What is the requirement for bulk fueling? 
A carrier’s bulk storage facilities are required to keep the records listed in the IFTA Procedures Manual under section P550.400. This includes each tank’s capacity, the receipts for all deliveries, the bulk withdrawal records for each tank, and the quarterly reconciliation of each tank. Since you have trucks that are IFTA, you must be compliant of section P550.400 for your bulk storage tanks. This means that you must keep records for all purchases of fuel that were deposited into your tanks and record each withdrawal, even if the fuel does not go into an IFTA vehicle. When bulk fuel from your tanks is deposited into an IFTA vehicle, you must keep records according to P550.600. For each bulk fuel withdrawal, the location of the tank, date, quantity, fuel type, and unit number of the vehicle must be recorded. Furthermore, if the bulk fuel withdrawal is tax-paid, then you must keep records according to P550.500, which states that you must record the purchase price of the fuel delivered and indicate that the bulk storage tank is located in the jurisdiction in which the tax was paid.
When does this new EROAD system become mandatory?  
EROAD’s solution is not mandatory. However, in addition to providing an electronic tax management solution for IFTA, IRP, and Oregon Weight-Mile Tax, EROAD provides an ELD compliant solution. The ELD mandate took effect December 18, 2017. For more information on the ELD mandate and how EROAD can help, please click here
How does this link with the Telematics being used? Is it required for drivers to use a tablet or something to input the Fuel Fillings or can this be done by the Admin people in office? 
Fuel Fills can be entered directly on the installed in-vehicle device, where the location information is automatically captured and recorded. Alternatively, administration and office employees can enter and upload fuel receipts in bulk. A third method for recording fuel fills is by using one of the telematics provider’s integrated fuel partners, where the fuel receipt information is made available without any extra tools or software needed. As for electronic tax management, no tablet or smartphone is needed to record mileage and fuel information. Everything you need is available through the in-vehicle device or through the web-based application.
Does every telematics provider have an Oregon Secretary of State Audit Report? 
Today, EROAD is the only telematics provider with government approved mileage records. The Oregon Secretary of State independently reviewed and verified EROAD’s mileage records as part of EROAD’s OR WMT Electronic Tax Management and found them to be more accurate than the traditional, paper-based records.
