Deadline Extended for Fuel Tax Refund

Posted: Updated:

Consumers have an extra day to request a refund on state fuel taxes.

"The Tax Department extended the deadline because the traditional deadline of June 30 falls on a Sunday this year," says Tax Commissioner Cory Fong. "We wanted to be sure that eligible consumers have time to apply for the refund. With the high gas prices these days, the gas tax refund is one way to offer a little relief to those eligible consumers, such as our agricultural producers and industrial contractors."

The fuel tax refund includes state taxes paid on gasoline or gasohol purchased during 2012 to power farm, ranch, and industrial equipment used off-road.

"If a vehicle is required to be licensed, the fuel tax paid on the fuel used in that vehicle is not refundable," Fong said. "The state offers to refund part of the taxes paid by industrial consumers, farmers and ranchers because their construction equipment, tractors and combines generally don't run on public highways," says Fong. 

Farmers and ranchers may receive a refund of 16 cents per gallon, and industrial consumers can request a refund of 22.5 cents per gallon. 

If a refund is not requested, the tax will stay in the Highway Distribution Fund.

The deadline for applying for the refund is July 1, 2013.
