NCDOR Waives Diesel Fuel Penalty Due to Hurricane Florence

Raleigh, N.C.

The North Carolina Department of Revenue, in response to diesel fuel supply interruptions resulting from Hurricane Florence, announced today it will not impose a tax penalty when dyed diesel fuel is sold for use in highway vehicles in the state of North Carolina.

This relief is consistent with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) waivers for North Carolina, allowing the use of Non-Road Diesel Locomotive and Marine Fuel without the imposition of a penalty when dyed diesel fuel is sold for use or used in highway motor vehicles in North Carolina. This relief is available effective Sept. 17, and will remain in effect through Sept. 28.
