IMPORTANT NOTICE TO LICENSED AIR CARRIERS
Apportionment of Aviation Fuel Tax No Longer Allowed
Effective July 1, 2000, air carriers can no longer apportion aviation fuel tax. The apportionment provision in subsection (2) of section 206.9825, Florida Statutes, expired on July 1, 2000, and was not extended by the Florida Legislature.
The Florida Air Carrier Fuel Dealers Tax Return (Form DR-182AC), which was used for apportioning gallons for fuel tax credit, will no longer be used. All licensed air carriers are now required to file the Florida Air Carrier Fuel Tax Return (Form DR-182) beginning with the July 2000 return.
Taxation of Aviation Fuel
The 6.9 cents per gallon Florida Aviation Fuel Excise Tax is imposed on all purchases of aviation fuel in this state, unless specifically exempted from aviation fuel tax by Florida Statutes. The purchase of bonded aviation fuel in this state remains exempt from the imposition of Florida Aviation Fuel Excise Tax, unless the bonded fuel purchased is converted to domestic use. The purchase of aviation fuel by air carriers offering transcontinental jet service whose Florida workforce increases by more than 1000 percent and by 250 or more full-time employee positions after January 1, 1996, also remains exempt from imposition of Florida Aviation Fuel Excise Tax.
