Frequently Asked Questions by our subscribers
Click a question to read the answer
a) the company reporting the transaction on Fueltrac has entered an incorrect FEIN or
b) the FEIN is correct but the trading partner has never signed up for a free subscription on Fueltrac.
To solve this problem the company registering the Diversion or Import must be contacted to correct the problem. If a) is the problem the company will need to correct the Diversion. If b) is the problem the company with the “unverified” information will have to sign up for a free Fueltrac subscription. As soon as this happens all diversions involving the questionable FEIN will be corrected automatically.
The improved Fueltrac makes it possible to report multiple drops in the same State. However, Fueltrac warns the data entry person and they must override any multiple drops in the same State.
Finally, if a second party to a transaction tries to register a second Diversion to a manifest Fueltrac will stop the process.
The second step is to register a third Diversion with the correct information.
Import /Exports are Calculated if the following conditions exist:
The Origin Terminal State is different from the Original Destination State.
Diversions are Calculated if the following conditions exist:
The shipments Origination is an IRS Registered Terminal and the Original Destination State is different from the New (Final) Destination State.
It can be seen that these two calculations are independent. However, if the load originates at an IRS Terminal then the Import/Export calculation is done first. Then the Diversion documents the fuel tax status for both states involved. Fueltrac does this evaluation on all Diversion registrations to make sure that double reporting of Import/Exports is not necessary.
It’s all done under the hood or the convenience of our customers.
