International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA)

Manitoba is a member of the International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA). This agreement among Canadian provinces and most U.S. states simplifies the reporting of fuel taxes by carriers who operate in more than one member province or state.
IFTA began in 1983 with three member states, and has grown substantially since then. IFTA membership consists of forty-eight U.S. states and the ten Canadian provinces. Eligible Manitoba carriers apply to Manitoba Finance - Taxation Division for fuel tax credentials which will cover travel in all IFTA member jurisdictions.

International Registration Plan (IRP)

Manitoba is now participating in the International Registration Plan (IRP). Effective March 1, 2001 Manitoba began providing IRP services to Manitoba-based truck and bus operators. IRP is a cross-border agreement between forty-eight U.S. states and the ten Canadian provinces for sharing commercial vehicle registration fees and road-use taxes.

The introduction of IRP will also change the calculation and collection of Manitoba’s retail sales tax for commercial vehicles registered under IRP. The 7% retail sales tax on purchased vehicles will be replaced by a Manitoba Prorate Vehicle Tax (PVT) paid each year at the time of registration of the vehicle. This approach permits owners to pay the tax on a lower annual basis, spreading the cost over the expected life of the vehicle. Carriers who register interjurisdictional vehicles under IRP, that were acquired before March 1, 2001 and on which the Manitoba retail sales tax was previously paid, are eligible for a transitional exemption/refund of the Manitoba PVT for up to two years. All refund requests are subject to a two-year limitation. The registration offices in individual IRP jurisdictions will collect and remit the province’s PVT on behalf of their carriers who indicate they will be travelling into Manitoba.


Manitoba based carriers register under IRP through the Manitoba Prorate Office at:
