State fuel tax refund deadline is near


The deadline to claim a state fuel tax refund is only two weeks away. 

The North Dakota Tax Department says June 30 is the last day eligible residents can apply for refunds of up to 23 cents per gallon on state taxes paid for gasoline and gasohol in 2017. 

This isn’t for the casual motorist, however. 

The refund is only for fuel purchased to power farm, ranch and industrial equipment used off-road. 

“State taxes collected on motor fuels are intended to go towards highway maintenance,” N.D. Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger says.  “However, the taxes paid by industrial consumers, farmers and ranchers is refundable because construction equipment, tractors and combines generally don’t run on public highways.”
