Minnesota – Taxability of Motor Fuels (Petroleum Tax Or Sales Tax)

SALT Report 3298 – The Minnesota Department of Revenue released Fact Sheet FS 116 in order to clarify the application of taxes to various types of fuel sales.

“Motor fuels and other petroleum products are subject to either petroleum tax or sales and use tax, but never both. The petroleum tax applies to fuel used in licensed motor vehicles. Either sales tax or petroleum tax applies to fuels for non-highway use. This fact sheet will help to explain which tax applies and when exemptions apply.”
