American Hydrocarbons has a legal responsibility to collect appropriate taxes based on the nature of products sold and the time and place of the sale. Depending on the tax status of your company or organization, certain exemptions to sales and use taxes may apply. As well, for purchasers of motor fuel, there may be exemptions for the state and federal motor fuel taxes charged to you. All applicable federal and state taxes are levied on transactions in accordance with the law. As a rule, nearly everyone is obligated to pay Federal Motor Fuel Excise Tax. If you have questions regarding the tax that appears on your invoice or any tax matter involving American Hydrocarbons, please contact American Hydrocarbons’ Tax Specialist, Matt Overaker.
