Indiana 2014 Sales Tax Changes

  • Dec 13, 2013 | Gail Cole

 They'll be sales tax changes at Indiana's gas stations in July, 2014.

Several Indiana Department of Revenue, the most notable changes have to do with gasoline.

Sales tax on gasoline repealed

Beginning July 1, 2014, “Indiana retail merchants will no longer be obligated to collect sales tax on gasoline sales.”

Beginning July 1, 2014, “Qualified distributors, refiners, or terminal operators will be required to collect and remit gasoline use tax to the department. The use tax rate will be calculated based on 7 percent of the statewide average retail price of gasoline.”

Other changes include but are not limited to:

  • The removal of outdated language from HEA, which clarifies the sales tax exemption for the rental of accommodations by nonprofit or government entities
  • Retailers delinquent in remitting sales or withholding taxes will have their registered retail merchant certificate (RRMC) renewed for one year rather than two.
  • Effective January 1, 2014, alternative fuel used in public transportation will not be exempt from sales tax “unless the person engaged in public transportation is a public transportation corporation providing transportation for persons.”
