Motor Fuel Return Applications:

• The document is usually the original sales receipt. All sales receipts must include the supplier’s name and address, date of purchase, type of fuel, gallons purchased, and fuel costs.
• For billing in different years, you need to prepare a separate application. Other uses need to be ready for each fuel.
• Applications can be submitted quarterly. Claims should be categorized by calendar quarter. You can only request once each quarter. Billings added or modified for a particular quarter can exclusively be submitted with the Excise Department’s permission. The added or modified claim must include a complete copy of the original request.
• If the fuel is not exempt from sales tax or usage tax, and if the sales tax on automobile fuel is not paid or refunded, the purchasing power will be subject to usage tax. Most claimants will need to fill out the tax adjustment section of the refund form. As a result, the refund will be reduced by the amount of the usage tax.
