Tax Commissioner Reminds Consumers of June 30th Fuel Tax Refund Deadline

Friday, June 12, 2015

BISMARCK, N.D. – Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger reminds consumers of the June 30th fuel taxes refund deadline. A refund of a portion of the state fuel taxes paid in 2014 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.

Farmers and ranchers may receive a refund of 16 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.

"We encourage consumers who believe they are eligible to file a claim for refund by June 30th," said Rauschenberger. "Refunds not claimed will stay in the Highway Distribution Fund."

Taxes collected on motor fuels are intended to go towards highway maintenance. However, part of 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 8 cents per gallon of aviation fuel.

The agriculture research fund receives a total of seven cents per gallon based on the refunds requested by agricultural producers. The Agricultural Products Utilization Commission (APUC) receives one-half cent per gallon based on the refunds requested by industrial consumers.

"For calendar year 2014, the fuel tax refund program provided the agricultural research fund more than $113,500 and APUC received more than $900," stated Rauschenberger. "Our office issued consumer refunds of over $347,800 dollars for about 2 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 or call the Motor Fuels Taxes Section at 701.328.3126.
