If I am not mistaken all road tax is collected at the pump. Trucks for hire are on the IFTA program and keep track of there miles in each state and have to pay enough tax for the miles they drive in each state. This way every state gets there fair share and truckers can't just buy in the cheaper states and pay no tax in the other states. It's a lot more complicated than I got room to explain here.The off-road fuel is for reefer that are not considered using the highway, farming is also off-road.

Nobody is getting ripped off . The truckers aren't road tax exempt - they just pay it direct to the Indiana state treasury quarterly rather than at the pump. Personal vehicles pay at the pump because they don't have an IFTA road tax accounting number. At the RV & auto-diesel pumps the road tax is included in the price, while at the truck islands it is not so they add it on at the cash register if you do not have an IFTA number. Same net price per gallon either way, for all parties.

However, all fuel is expensive in Indiana. Regular is still over $4/gal in most palces, from what I see on gasbuddy.com. Diesel is a bit better, but still just under $4 at many stations.

Not for commercial vehicles in Indiana and Oregon. They pay direct via their IFTA account number, which is why they have to enter it at the pump when they fuel.

If you have an LLC you may also be required to do this!! An LLC subjects you to various commercial laws depending on the state you're in. California has been known to stop vehicles that have signs on them or the towed and ask for their records. The fine is pretty steep too.

No, the colored diesel is for off road use only like on a farm, although if you keep accurate records you can also get a refund for use in your generator or hydro-hot. Some state's will stop you and check your tank for signs of the dye. Takes many tanks of non-dyed fuel to dilute it enough to be undetectable.

I think the state of Kalifornia is just trying to collect money they are not due. I was an owner operator and had to operate under IFTA, it is applicable to commercial trucks operating interstate.

The tax is paid at the pump but if you are a trucker you have to buy enough fuel to cover your miles in IND. If you travel more miles than you have fuel purchased that's what the IFTA reporting does you either owe or get a refund. It's a process that you file the report and figure out who get's paid and where you bought to much get a refund and where you are short you pay, they divide it up so everybody is happy.

Yeah, but what PO'ed me a few years ago was the huge signs with NO indication that the good-looking price was not for me. Still think its false advertising.
