When you have a transmission issue with your vehicle, what do you do?
You take it to a transmission specialist mechanic, or to your vehicle’s dealership. At the dealership they will get their specialized transmission mechanics to work on it. They will also put to use their specialized tools for repairing transmissions.
Sure! You can also take your vehicle to any general mechanic who has a good idea on how to work on all parts of your vehicle. However, he or she is not a specialist in transmissions, and might not have the proper tools to do the job right.
When it comes to IFTA, the same principle applies. A program that specializes in IFTA is your best bet when it comes to fuel taxes. You will have the proper tool to get the job done correctly. You will also have peace of mind because you know there are specialists behind the tool.
Of course, you have choices to get your quarterly fuel tax report completed.
One choice is hiring somebody to do your IFTA reports. You can find accountants, bookkeepers, or compliance offices to do it for you. However, keep in mind that you still have to provide them with all the mileage and fuel information to put together your quarterly IFTA report. Which means you have done half of the work already. Sure, they can submit it for you, but submitting the report is nothing to sweat about. You can either mail it in, drop it off at your state office, or submit it online through your state website.
A complaint we have heard time and time again is that these people will not provide you with the answers you need, when you want them.
When you use a program that specializes in IFTA, you can manage and use it the way that makes sense with how you collect your mileage and fuel data and/or your operations. You can get answers in the middle of the night, or during weekends, or any time you want.
You will save money and energy when you do your report with an IFTA program.
Your other choice to get your IFTA report completed is to do it yourself without an IFTA program. The risk here is that you might be doing your report incorrectly, and if audited it will cost you way more money than using an IFTA program.
The choices are there, but only one is dedicated to you, completes your report correctly, and lets you manage your own fuel and mileage data in a way that follows regulations as well as makes sense to your business.
So, why not use a program to do it?
Not only you learn what IFTA is all about, how it works, and why you must comply with it, but with a specialized IFTA program it becomes an easy task that can be completed in minutes. You will also learn how to manage your IFTA expense based on your operating cash-flow. Whether it is you, your partner, or your employee doing it, you will immediately save time and energy that can be put back into your business to make more money instead.
