Florida – Exemption for Dyed Diesel Fuel

SALT Report 2559 – Recently enacted legislation in Florida provides a sales and use tax exemption for dyed diesel fuel. The exemption applies to sales and purchases of dyed diesel fuel that will be used in commercial fishing and aquacultural vessels or equipment and vehicles not intended for use on roads and highways. The fuel is dyed red so that it is easily identifiable by the U.S. Department of Transportation who is required to verify that the fuel is not being used in vehicles on the highway.

This exemption is effective July 1, 2013.
