The bill would amend Chapter 162 of the Tax Code, regarding motor fuel taxes, to allow a credit or refund of diesel fuel tax paid on diesel fuel used for auxiliary power units or power take-off equipment on any motor vehicle.
The bill would take effect September 1, 2013.
House Bill 2458, 78th Legislature, Regular Session, 2003, repealed Chapter 153 of the Tax Code (Motor Fuel Taxes) and replaced it with Chapter 162, which became the new motor fuel taxes chapter.
Under former Chapter 153, specified entities could apply for a refund or take a credit for diesel fuel tax paid on diesel fuel used by auxiliary power units or power take-off equipment on any motor vehicle. This bill would reinstate the auxiliary power unit and power take-off deduction allowed under the former chapter by allowing a license holder to take a credit, and a non-license holder to file a refund claim, for the amount of diesel fuel tax paid on diesel fuel used by an auxiliary power unit or power take-off equipment on any motor vehicle.
The fiscal 2014 estimate was adjusted for the statutory lag in motor fuel tax remittances. The change in revenues was then subjected to the statutory allocation of diesel fuel tax revenues.
