Motor Fuel Excise Tax Administration and Its Impact on Certain Transactions

Excise taxes on petroleum products have existed for years and historically have applied to traditional petroleum products, such as gasoline, diesel and jet fuel. However, in recent years, changes in the industry have increased the reach of these taxes. With the expansion of commercially available products, such as biodiesel and other renewable fuels, and new source/distribution networks due to the shale play, the number of companies impacted by excise taxes has drastically increased. Today, excise taxes impact not only traditional refining and petroleum wholesale marketing companies but also petroleum product/crude importers, pipeline operators, terminal operators, natural gas fractionators and companies involved in renewable fuels.

For example, the motor fuel excise tax affects many petroleum and biofuel industry participants. And with a wide range of transactions subject to this constantly changing specialty tax, anyone involved in the production, transportation and marketing of any liquid that is remotely related to fuel products should exercise care and take steps to mitigate unwanted consequences, such as exposure to penalties.
