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.
