If you sell gasoline, then you will need to register for prepaid gasoline sales tax by filing a Business Tax Application (BT-1).
In the Sales Tax Information section of the BT-1, checking the ‘Selling Gasoline’ option triggers you to become registered and known as a Metered Pump filer. If the taxpayer collects prepaid sales tax as a qualified distributor, he or she would be required to obtain a prepaid license.
There is a $100 registration fee for prepaid gasoline sales tax. In addition to filing a BT-1, the businesses must also have a bond with the Department.
More information can be found in Sales Tax Information Bulletins at www.in.gov/dor/3650.htm or you may also call the Excise Tax Section at (317) 615-2552. For more information about obtaining a bond, contact the Bonds/Licensing Section at (317) 615-2625.
