Under the International Fuel Tax Agreement, a driver's home state is the state in which the driver has registered the qualified motor vehicle, where the vehicle travels, and where the driver maintains or can gain access to the vehicle operating records, states the International Fuel Tax Association. A driver with vehicles registered in multiple states needs to contact one state to see whether the vehicles can be consolidated under a single license. Members of the International Fuel Tax Agreement cooperate to collect and distribute motor fuel use taxes. All 10 provinces of Canada are members of the agreement. Alaska and Hawaii are not members.
