With as much lake time as my boat has seen over the past 2 years, I may do this...

Question (or request)... Does anyone know how much per gallon the refund is in Texas?

I know they take off 2%, but I mean the gross amount.

Thanks guys

MC

A person may claim a refund of the tax paid on gasoline or diesel fuel used off the highway as long as the request is postmarked no later than one year from the first day of the calendar month following the purchase or use of the fuel. The tax on gas and diesel is 20; the refund will factor in a 2% distributor's tax.
there ya go for texas

20 per gallon minus 2% distributor's tax (comes out to .004 or less than 1)... I know my lake time has drastically dropped off from years gone by, but even recreationally taking the boat out 3 times a month from May thru September for a long day could quickly add up. Hitting the lake every weekend and sometime during the week could pay back some of the other expenses nicely.

Thanks for the info.

Have never heard about this from anyone. In CT I'm looking at 25 cents/gal. Will start saving receipts from now on.

For TX it states, "refund claims must be supported by fuel receipts containing the following information:
name and location of sellar
name of purchaser
type of fuel purchased
date of purchase
number of gallons purchased
price per gallon
amount of tax paid on fuel

That is a lot of information I don't have! I figure I'll try and see if they request documentation.
All that information is on your receipt if you pay with a credit card. I have been doing this for boat and jet skis for years in Texas. I just keep all the reciepts and write on the back "put in 5 gallon cans for use in boat" (for some reason their office wants this on there). Collect them all summer then mail it all off with the proper form to get your road tax money back! They will send you a check within a month or so.

Interesting - so you did not tape the receipts to an 8x11 sheet of paper like I thought I'd do...?

Haven't needed to do that in the past.
