Michigan Fuel Tax Rates, April 2016


 Prepaid sales tax rates for fuel sold in Michigan drop in April.

Every month, the Michigan Department of Treasury determines the following month’s prepaid sales tax rates for fuel. Rates are based on a percentage of the statewide average retail price of a gallon of self-serve unleaded regularly gasoline and the statewide average retail price of a gallon of undyed No. 2 ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel.

Based as they are on prices at the pump, prepaid sales tax rates have been declining steadily for months. Keeping in step with this trend, April 2016 rates are lower than the March 2016 rates. April rates are as follows:

  • Gasoline: 8.1 cents per gallon
  • Diesel fuel: 10.4 cents per gallon
