Alberta Extends International Fuel Tax Agreement Quarterly Tax Return Filing Deadline

Tax Development Apr 17, 2020

Alberta has announced in International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) Special Notice Vol. 10 No. 4, “Extension of Quarterly Tax Return Filing Deadline”, that interjurisdictional carriers will be granted an additional two months to file their IFTA first quarter 2020 returns.  Returns previously due on April 30, 2020 will become due on June 30, 2020.  Therefore, no penalty will accrue for late returns for the first quarter where the returns are submitted on or before the revised due date.

Although additional time is granted for filing the first quarter 2020 IFTA Quarterly Tax Return, no changes have been made to the due date for related payments. Organizations may need to make an estimated payment to avoid interest accruing on any fuel tax payable for January–March 2020.
