Temporary Trip (IRP) & Fuel (IFTA) Permits

WCS Permits can help you stay compliant whether you need Temporary Trip Permits, also known as IRP Permits, or Temporary Fuel Permits, commonly referred to as IFTA Permits. 

Temporary Trip Permits (IRP) act as a temporary vehicle registration for commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) traveling outside of their home state and Temporary Fuel Permits (IFTA) are issued to CMVs who do not have current IFTA credentials for states they will travel through.  

More About Temporary Fuel Permits (IFTA)

The International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) is an agreement between the US States & Canadian provinces to simplify the reporting of fuel taxes.The purpose of IFTA is to establish and maintain the concept of one fuel use license for carriers operating qualified motor vehicles interstate. An IFTA allows a taxpayer to file one tax report that covers all member jurisdictions. 

Since the International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) is a base state or province fuel tax agreement, any person based in a member jurisdiction that operates one or more qualified CMVs (Commercial Motor Vehicles) in two or more member jurisdictions is required to license under the International Fuel Tax Agreement, or purchase temporary fuel permits for travel in any member jurisdictions.  

A qualified motor vehicle is classified as having the following:

  • Two axles and a gross vehicle weight or registered gross vehicle weight exceeding 26,000 pounds or 11,797 kilograms
  • Three or more axles regardless of weight 
  • A tractor and trailer with a registered weight over 26,000 pounds or 11,797 kilogram, then you will require a Fuel Permit if you do not have an IFTA Decal on your truck

A temporary Fuel Permit will be required if you fit one of these categories and do not have an IFTA Decal on your truck
