Michigan is collecting it all at the pump

| 4/4/2003

Michigan is now collecting the full diesel fuel tax at the time of purchase. The new rule went into effect April 1, 2003.

There is no longer a 6-cent per gallon fuel tax discount at the pump. The Michigan surcharge on the IFTA return has been eliminated on the quarterly report beginning with the file period ending June 2003.

In addition, you will no longer need to file the Supplemental Motor Carrier Tax Report (Form 3240). Credit for tax paid on diesel fuel used in non-highway equipment and formerly taken on the supplemental report can be taken on a Claim for Refund of Motor Fuel Tax (Form 680-2).

If you have claimed a credit for non-highway use of fuel on a supplemental report within the last year, you will automatically receive a pre-identified refund claim form and instructions in a separate mailing.

If you do not receive a refund claim form and find you need one, please call (517) 636-4600. You can also call that number if you have additional questions, or write the Michigan Department of Treasury, Customer Contact Division, Special Taxes Section, Lansing, MI, 48922, or visit our Web site at www.michigan.gov/treasury.
