California Commercial Truck Tax Services

Navigating the complex landscape of tax responsibilities is a critical component of operating commercial trucks.

Our goal is to simplify the tax compliance process for our clients, allowing them to focus more on their operations and less on the nuances of tax regulation.

Tax Services Offered

In California, truck operators must navigate a series of critical tax filings to ensure compliance and optimal operation of their fleets. Diesel Plates and Permits offers expert handling of key tax documents including:

Diesel Plates and Permits

BOC-3 Filing

This federal filing is crucial as it designates a process agent in each state who can receive legal documents on behalf of the truck operator. For operators in California, this ensures representation across all states in which they operate.

IFTA Filing

The International Fuel Tax Agreement requires truck operators to report fuel use by state. This agreement simplifies the reporting of fuel taxes by allowing the truck operator to file one report in their base state, which then distributes the taxes to other states according to where the fuel was used. This is particularly important for California-based operators due to the significant amount of interstate traffic.

2290 Road Tax Filing

Also known as the Heavy Highway Vehicle Use Tax, this tax must be filed for trucks weighing over 55,000 pounds. This tax is critical for California truck operators due to the state's heavy regulations on vehicle weight and road usage.
