IFTA Motor Fuel Tax bonds are a form of financial guarantee bond. They are sometimes required by member jurisdictions of the International Fuel Tax Association (IFTA). Fuel bonds provide a guarantee that licensed motor carriers will file their tax returns, and pay their fuel taxes within the required time period. Member jurisdictions are allowed to request motor fuel tax bonds from carriers, although it is not generally a requirement for IFTA licensing. They are often requested from licensed motor carriers whose tax reporting and payment history are considered problematic. If a carrier fails to pay their taxes the surety will be responsible for paying the tax amount on their behalf.
