AGREEMENT TO MAINTAIN RECORDS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE
INTERNATIONAL FUEL TAX AGREEMENT AND THE INTERNATIONAL
REGISTRATION PLAN’S RECORD KEEPING REQUIREMENTS
Every licensee shall maintain adequate records of operation. The licensee shall preserve the records for
IRP for the three mileage reporting periods (July 1 through June 30) which immediately precede the current
license year, along with the current license year. The licensee shall preserve the records for IFTA for a
period of four years from the due date of the return.
South Dakota requires that records be made available to the department for audit upon request. In the event
the licensee fails to make acceptable records available for the audit, the department may make assessments
and penalties for the period under audit and may suspend or cancel license privileges.
