  • Gas tax+boat

    Guys just wanted to remind some of you with the new year that many of you (especially nc guys) need to keep your reciepts for your boat gas this year. In NC your refund is roughly 34 cents a gallon. May not sound like much but if you burn gas like we do you could be due for a 300+ dollar refund at the end of the year. Thats pretty much your insurance bill for the year paid back by the state for tax usage you shouldn't be paying! d*** the man, save the empire. For state specific info check here

      Has anyone done this before and had to show documentation for their number of gallons claimed?

      For TX it states, "refund claims must be supported by fuel receipts containing the following information:
      name and location of sellar
      name of purchaser
      type of fuel purchased
      date of purchase
      number of gallons purchased
      price per gallon
      amount of tax paid on fuel

      That is a lot of information I don't have! I figure I'll try and see if they request documentation.

        Well, unfortunately I get screwed again in CA. At http://www.sco.ca.gov/ardtax_gastax_....html#sect2671 under the Gas Tax Refund General FAQ it says:

        Is a refund available for the tax paid on gasoline used in a vessel?

        Refunds of the tax paid on gasoline are available if the vessel is used in the ocean beyond the three (3) mile limit. Refunds of the tax paid also are available if used in propelling a vessel operated by its owner on waters located on private property owned or controlled by the claimant.
        I have my receipts from 2010. A log of good they are going to do me.

            Thanks for the tip on this. Wish I would have known about it sooner since WA state has some of the highest gas tax in the nation! FYI fellow Washingtonians can obtain the form to submit with your fuel receipts at: www.dol.wa.gov/forms/442071.pdf
            I'll definitely be saving all of those fuel receipts this year.

              I wish Minnesota would have this credit. Might have to become a squeaky wheel.

                  it only makes sense. not using the highway for this vehicle. If nothing else you pay more to tow than others

                        Because only certain states have this on the books. To me I'd wager that the states that aren't have lower populations or lower taxes. NC is out of whack with gas. They throw this cookie out, no one takes advantage of it, and they win. Its very clever and actually fair. May the smart prosper

                          Here in Wisconsin we lose too. A break of some sort would not be turned down. If someone doesn't want to use it, don't apply.

                            but appears to be $0.20 (20 cents) per gallon with only a 2% (or 2 cent?) hold back for filing. I have gone thru 30 gallons a day ($6 rebate minus hold back), so it could add up pretty quickly with our long boating season here in Texas.

                              yep, what I was thinking ... but since my dad passed away ('04) I haven't tried to keep records of what goes into my tractors. But I guess you could also include lawnmowers, weedeaters, etc. along with tractor diesel, fuel for any UTV and boats ... man, that could add up to a considerable amount of fuel over a years time... I wonder about all the time I spend driving around in the pasture of the ranch, deer leases, etc. ... hmmmmm
