GAS TAX REFUND DEADLINE IS MARCH 31
Alabama farmers have until March 31 to file their state gasoline tax refund claims with the Alabama Department of Revenue. Refund claims are based on portions of the state excise tax paid by farmers on gasoline used during 2002 for agricultural purposes. The portion of the gasoline tax that can be refunded applies only to the amount of gasoline that is used in tractors or any auxiliary engines which may be attached to tractors. Gasoline used in farm trucks is not subject to a refund.
Taxes on gasoline purchased from Jan. 1, 2002 through Dec. 31, 2002 will be refunded at the rate of 1 cent per gallon. The refund applies to the tax levied upon gasoline only; it does not apply to any tax levied upon diesel fuel.
Claim forms may be obtained by writing to: Alabama Department of Revenue, Sales, Use and Business Tax Division, Motor Fuels Section, P. O. Box 327540, Montgomery, AL 36132-7540, or telephone 334-242-9608. Forms also are available at county Extension System offices.
