IFTA is an agreement between the mainland U.S. states and the Canadian provinces requiring a carrier to register and report the fuel use of any qualified motor vehicle that operates in more than one jurisdiction. If Massachusetts is your base jurisdiction, you must renew your IFTA registration for each calendar year (January 1 through December 31) and file quarterly returns.

What is MassTaxConnect?
MassTaxConnect is the Department of Revenue's new secure Web-based application to allow certain business taxpayers to register, file, and/or pay tax obligations online. Initially, MassTaxConnect will only be available to a limited number of taxpayers, including IFTA taxpayers.  No additional software or programs are needed to use the new online system; you will access it directly from the DOR website.
