Fuel Gross Receipts tax
Lawmakers in Montpelier are currently considering legislation to reauthorize the fuel Gross Receipts Tax (GRT) and increase the tax rate on certain fuels, including heating fuel and dyed diesel. This tax cannot be shown on fuel delivery tickets, and thus appears as a markup to fuel customers. H.841 would increase the the tax on “heating oil, propane, kerosene, and other dyed diesel fuel” as well as “coal and natural gas” from 1/2% to 1%. This tax includes dyed diesel used to operate town trucks and school buses and dyed fuel sold to Vermont farmers. H.841 is currently supported by nearly forty lawmakers, including the following from our service area:
Rep. Mary S. Hooper – (802) 223-2892 / [email protected]
Rep. Warren F. Kitzmiller – (802) 229-0878 / [email protected]
Rep. Francis McFaun – (802) 479-9843 / [email protected]
Rep. Tommy Walz – (802) 476-7819 / [email protected]
A full list of this bill’s supporters can be found through the Vermont Fuel Dealer’s Association.
We strongly encourage customers to contact their representatives and make their opinion known, or face an unfortunate increase in fuel prices.
