Oregon – Exemption for Certain Biodiesel Blends

SALT Report 2793 – The Oregon State Legislature recently enacted legislation that provides an exemption from motor fuel excise taxes for certain blends of biodiesel fuel.  The exemption applies to diesel fuel that is blended with a minimum of 20% biodiesel that is derived from used cooking oil.

However, the exemption will not apply if the fuel is used in a motor vehicle with a gross vehicle weight of 26,001 pounds or more, if the fuel is sold in a retail operation, or if the fuel is sold in an operation that involves fleet fueling or bulk sales.

The exemption applies to fuel sold on or after January 1, 2014, and will expire on January 1, 2020.
