Petroleum Tax Tank Cleanup Fee
The first licensed distributor who is responsible for reporting the gallons to the Minnesota Department of Revenue must pay this fee when it is in effect. The fee is based on all gallons received into Minnesota and that are placed into storage for use in this state.
Revenue from this fee goes to the state Petroleum Tank Fund, which helps pay for the prevention and cleanup of leaks from petroleum storage tanks. The fee is temporarily imposed for a 4-month period whenever the balance of the fund falls below $4 million.
