#Good news! The IRS has extended the tax deadline to April 18th! As long as you submit your federal return by midnight on 4/18/2018, you won't be considered a late filer for your federal return. Direct debit tax payments that are submitted with your federal return (or on the IRS website) by 4/18 are also considered timely filed ×

What is the fuel tax credit?

The federal government charges excise taxes on certain types of fuels. There are, however, some nontaxable uses of these fuels, for which the purchaser can claim a credit.

You may be eligible if you paid fuel excise taxes for qualifying fuel types listed here and used the fuel for nontaxable purposes. Some examples of nontaxable uses include:

  • On a farm for farming purposes
  • In a school bus
  • In a boat engaged in commercial fishing

Find out what other uses are eligible for the credit here.
