New York – Local Sales and Use Tax Rates on Motor Fuels and B20 Biodiesel

SALT Report 2843 – The New York Department of Taxation and Finance released the current sales and use tax rates that apply to motor fuel and highway diesel motor fuel sold as qualified fuel.  The publication states that New York tax law allows each county and city to stay with the percentage rate method, or they can elect to change the percentage rate sales tax to a cents-per-gallon rate.

Because of this, the Department will update this publication whenever a local rate change occurs, or when a jurisdiction enacts or repeals the cents-per-gallon method of computing sales tax on qualified fuel.

The rates reflected in the publication are effective September 1, 2013.
