Tax Refunds on Fuels Used Off Road
You may receive a refund of taxes paid on fuels used in off-highway, non-vehicular, gasoline-powered equipment such as generators, boats, or tractors. Original invoices must be presented when claiming fuel tax refunds. Taxpayers have one year from the date of purchase to claim a refund. To make a claim, complete the Texas Claim for Refund of Gasoline Fuel Taxes Form and follow the submission instructions.
You may also receive permission to purchase tax exempt dyed diesel fuel for use off the road by completing the Texas Dyed Diesel Fuel Registration Form.
