Refunds for the Special Fuel Surcharge -- Refunds for the special fuel surcharge (including that imposed on diesel, biodiesel, compressed natural gas and liquefied natural gas) are available to non-motor carriers who purchased special fuel in Indiana on or after July 1, 2017.

If submitting receipts, they must be legible and include the number of diesel gallons purchased along with the purchase location. If filing a claim without receipts, you must also include the purchase dates, purchase locations and the number of gallons purchased on the GA-110L form. Without receipts, DOR will not refund a claim over $20. If you have any questions, please contact Special Fuel Tax at 317-615-2630 or by email at Fetax@dor.in.gov.
