South Dakota to start IFTA license fees

| March 05, 2012

South Dakota is implementing fees to finance an electronic system to run the state’s IFTA program.

The state will charge a license fee and a renewal fee for carriers licensing under the International Fuel Tax Agreement. The fees will begin July 1.

The fees will cover the cost of setting up an electronic filing system for collecting IFTA fees. Administrative money covers the current program.

A new law requires truckers to pay $10 to set up an account and $10 for annual renewals. Decals will cost $1.50, up from 50 cents, and $1 will be charged to mail the decals.
