Washington Petroleum Products Tax Re-Imposed Effective July 1, 2015

Posted on June 1, 2015

The State of Washington is re-imposing the Petroleum Products Tax effective July 1, 2015. This tax was imposed on July 1, 1989 to finance a state pollution liability insurance program. The program provides affordable insurance to owners and operators of underground petroleum storage tanks and heating oil tanks. State law requires re-imposing the tax when the trust account balance falls below $7.5 million. The last time this tax was imposed and subsequently suspended was July 1, 2009 – March 31, 2010.

Please see the attached “Special Notice Washington State Department of Revenue” for a full explanation of the tax. The rate of the tax is .3% of wholesale value and will be added to the current Miscellaneous Tax charge which is a separate line item on your invoice from APP.

Please note that if you make purchases outside the State of Washington, you will not be charged this tax, i.e. Portland, Oregon. This tax is exclusively a State of Washington tax.

If you have any questions regarding this tax you can view online at: http://1.usa.gov/1FlWf9m
