International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) Licence
Effective January 1, 1996, New Brunswick became a member of the International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA). IFTA is an agreement among all Canadian Provinces and most American states that facilitates the process whereby interjurisdictional motor carriers are able to report and pay all motor carrier fuel taxes to a single base jurisdiction.
You are eligible to apply to New Brunswick for an IFTA licence and decals if you meet all of the following criteria:
- you are a carrier with one or more qualified motor vehicles registered in New Brunswick;
- you either maintain operational records in New Brunswick, or agree to sign an affidavit stating you are prepared to make records available to New Brunswick at your own expense; and
- your qualified motor vehicles travel in New Brunswick and at least one other IFTA-member jurisdiction.
To apply for an IFTA licence and decals, you must complete an application and submit it to this department, together with the applicable licensing fee and decal fee.
IFTA licences are valid from January 1 to December 31. It is incumbent upon all licensees to renew their licences and obtain new decals each year before December 31. New Brunswick may not issue a renewal if you have shown no interjurisdictional operations over the year.
When you submit your application for initial licence or renewal, please ensure that you have provided all of the information requested, including the number of decals required for the registration year. Failure to provide either the required information or the proper payment of the licensing fee and decal fee will result in a delay in processing your application.
Please be advised that if your licence is revoked in another IFTA-member jurisdiction, you will not be eligible to register in New Brunswick.
