LANGLEY, B.C. — The B.C. Trucking Association (BCTA) is celebrating a lobbying victory that will see carriers have access to an unrestricted number of International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) decals.
When B.C. signed on with IFTA, carriers were initially only allocated the exact number of decals for which they submitted vehicle information. Therefore, fleets faced an administrative nightmare each time they needed more decals for additional trucks, or to replace decals lost on damaged windshields.
The BCTA has been lobbying the Consumer Taxation Branch to change this policy for several years now, and the restrictions have finally been lifted altogether. The branch will issue a change in policy notice shortly, according to the BCTA, simplifying the process for both carriers and government.
