Rauschenberger: Fuel Tax Refund Deadline is Approaching

BISMARCK, N.D. – Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger reminds consumers of the approaching June 30 fuel taxes refund deadline.  A refund of the state fuel taxes paid in 2015 on gasoline/gasohol purchased to power farm, ranch and industrial equipment used off-road is available to qualified consumers. Fuel purchased for use by an emergency medical services operation also qualifies for a refund of the tax.

“Eligible consumers will need to file a claim for refund by June 30, 2016” said Rauschenberger. “Refunds not claimed will stay in the Highway Distribution Fund.”

Farmers and ranchers may receive a refund of 23 cents per gallon, and industrial consumers may request a refund of 22.5 cents per gallon for gasoline/gasohol purchased. Gasohol is a mixture of gasoline and ethanol, with the most common mixture of 90 percent gasoline and 10 percent ethanol.

“Taxes collected on motor fuels are intended to go towards highway maintenance,” Rauschenberger stated.  “However, the taxes paid by industrial consumers, farmers and ranchers is refundable because construction equipment, tractors and combines generally don't run on public highways.”

Emergency medical services operations may request a refund of 23 cents per gallon for purchases of gasoline/gasohol or non-dyed diesel fuel and eight cents per gallon of aviation fuel.

The Agricultural Products Utilization Commission (APUC) receives one-half cent per gallon based on the refunds requested by industrial consumers.

For calendar year 2015, $281,723 dollars in refunds were issued for more than 1.65 million gallons of motor fuel sold. 

For more information on the motor fuel tax refund, visit the Office of State Tax Commissioner’s website at www.nd.gov/tax/motorfuel/forms/refunds or call the Motor Fuels Taxes Section at 701.328.3126.
