Tax Information for Truckers
Inter-jurisdictional carriers pay sales tax, fuel tax and registration fees based on the proportion of distance travelled in Saskatchewan compared to the distance travelled in all jurisdictions.
1. Fuel Tax
Under the International Fuel Tax Agreement, carriers operating in Saskatchewan are required to pay fuel tax on the fuel consumed in Saskatchewan.
2. Prorated Vehicle Tax
The Prorated Vehicle Tax (PVT) allows for the payment of tax by all registrants of an inter-jurisdictional vehicle, based on their proportionate travel in Saskatchewan.
3. Registration Programs
The International Registration Plan is an agreement that provides for the apportionment of vehicle registration fees across jurisdictions in North America where the carrier is registered to operate. The program is administered by Saskatchewan Government Insurance, and distance audits are conducted by the Ministry of Finance on behalf of the province.
