Alternative Fuel Tax Credit Retroactively Extended for Propane Autogas Vehicles

FLEETS CAN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE CREDITS STARTING IN 2022

The Propane Education & Research Council encourages propane autogas fleet operators to take advantage of the Alternative Fuel Tax Credit, which was recently passed by the US Congress as part of the Inflation Reduction Act, 2022.

Propane autogas fleet operators who apply for the tax credit will be able to claim a credit for every gasoline gallon equivalent of propane autogas purchased, or about 37 cents per gallon. The bill extends the credits through December 31, 2024. It also allows fleet owners to apply for credits retroactively for any fuel purchases made in 2022. Tax exempt entities using propane autogas from an on-site fueling station for a vehicle fleet also qualify for the incentive.

“Thousands of fleets across the country rely on propane autogas every day for environmental sustainability, and these credits provide another opportunity for fleets to ensure they’re also realizing financial sustainability,” says Steve Whaley, director of autogas business development at PERC. “Even without the credits, propane autogas provides the lowest total cost-of-ownership. As an abundant and available energy source, propane autogas can make a difference in communities around the nation today.”

The new law also extends the Alternative Fuel Vehicle Refueling Property Credit. This allows operators to claim up to 6% or $100,000 of the cost of installing qualified alternative fuel refueling property. It also includes propane autogas refueling equipment.

All fleets should consult their tax advisers regarding any claims for credits or refunds.
