Indiana: When Alternative Fuels Are Subject to Sales Tax


 Not.

The Indiana Department of Revenue is reminding taxpayers that effective January 1, 2014, alternative fuel used in public transportation is not exempt from sales tax in Indiana when it is purchased by a public transportation corporation organized in accordance with IC 36-9-4 providing public transportation to persons.

Under HEA 1324-2013, “alternative fuel purchased after December 31, 2013, and before January 1, 2017, used in providing public transportation of persons or property is subject to sales tax.” This act is set to expire on December 31, 2016.

Additional information is contained in Information Bulletin #12 dated September 2014.
