Michigan Fuel Sales Tax Rates, November 2015
- Oct 13, 2015 | Gail Cole
Purchasers or receivers of gasoline in Michigan are required to prepay a portion of the sales tax to the refiner, pipeline terminal operator, or marine terminal operator at the time of purchase or shipment. Since April 1, 2013, prepaid sales tax rates for both gasoline and diesel fuel are set monthly by the Michigan Department of Treasury.
Also as of April 1, 2013, this prepayment requirement applies to a broad category of fuels: gasoline (including alcohol and any oxygenate that can be blended for use in a motor fuel) and diesel fuel (excluding dyed diesel fuel, kerosene and any excluded liquid) as defined in MCL 205.56a(11). Additionally, beginning on that date, prepaid sales tax is due on the purchase or receipt of fuel made outside Michigan. The prepaid sales tax form is available here.
- Gasoline: 12.3 cents per gallon
- Diesel fuel: 13.8 cents per gallon
