Fuel Tax Recovery

What Are Fuel Taxes

Fuel Taxes are monetary assessments made on the purchase of motor fuels by federal, state, county, and municipal governments and regulatory agencies throughout the United States, US territories, and Canada. For the most part, these assessments are made to support the construction and maintenance of public streets, roads, highways, and bridges throughout the country.

Fuel taxes can account for as much as $0.60 of each gallon of motor fuel.

How Fuel Tax Can Be Recovered

The fact is there's no universal formula or easy process for recovering fuel taxes. However, depending on the industry, the type(s) of fuel used by your fleet, the mix of vehicles and equipment, the taxing jurisdiction(s), where and how fuels are purchased and consumed, and a variety of other criteria, many opportunities exist for the recovery of motor fuel taxes. 

Examples of commonly overlooked Fuel Tax Recovery opportunities:

  • Power Take Off (PTO)
  • Off-Road
  • Idle Time
  • Refrigerated Units
  • Exempt Government Agencies
