    Theman, it depends on lines O/O running. If he ( she) all over the map- yes, I agree with you.
    But if it's always within 1 corridor, than IFTA is manageable.
    Although, I always had to pay, because all deliveries were by border line.
    Not any more, since switched to local only.

    You also wouldn't want your own IFTA account as an owner-operator. I would consider it one of the advantages of leasing on with someone.

    Based on my experience, all fleets ( large or small ) require all O/O's go through carrier account for all reasons you are stated.
    It's help to control renewal as well.
    Unless O/O's running under own authorities, than they require to open their own accounts and pay ( collect ) IFTA taxes and renew stickers.
    Hope that helps..

    Where a fleet hires an owner-operator does the o/o have the option of getting his own IFTA account or must this go through the carrier? The carriers I've worked for in the past have all been fairly large and administered the IFTA on behalf of their o/o via the carriers' IFTA account. This made sense as the company was also selling them fuel and/or providing company fuel cards. But for smaller fleets is that the case or do o/o at those fleets have the option of administering their own fuel under their own IFTA account?
