TIP # 13B05-02
DATE ISSUED: June 28, 2013
Effective July 1, 2013, section 206.02, Florida Statutes is amended to relieve municipalities, counties, or school districts from the requirement to obtain a wholesaler license if they manufacture biodiesel fuel for self-consumption.
Instead, a municipality, county, or school district that manufactures biodiesel for its own use must obtain a local government user of diesel fuel license by filing a Florida Fuel Tax Application (Form DR-156). Upon receipt of the license, the local government must file a Local Government User of Diesel Fuel Tax Return (Form DR-309634) each month to account for biodiesel produced and product remaining in inventory. A local government user of diesel fuel must remit the required tax owed on all biodiesel manufactured for its own use.
A municipality, county, or school district that manufactures biodiesel fuel for sale must obtain a wholesaler's license by filing a Florida Fuel Tax Application (Form DR-156). Upon receipt of the license, a municipality, county, or school district must file a Wholesaler/Importer Fuel Tax Return (Form DR-309632), and remit the required tax to the Department.
