Vermont: Sales Tax on Free-Standing Containers of Propane


Propane sold at retail in free-standing containers is subject to Vermont sales tax. However, it is not subject to the state fuel gross receipts tax. This policy took effect on July 1, 2014.

Sales tax is charged on purchases of a new container filled with propane and on exchanges of an empty container for a full container. It is not charged on refills of a container owned by the buyer. See the Vermont Department of Taxes fact sheet for additional information.
