What's New for Petroleum Tax


2024-2025 Petroleum Debt Service Surcharge Rate

The Debt Service Surcharge Rate will remain at $0.035 per gallon for July 1, 2024 – June 30, 2025.

The surcharge is determined by amount needed to pay the debt service on the trunk highway bond which is used to construct, improve, and maintain Minnesota's interstates and highways.

The surcharge is included in the per gallon fuel rate. For example, the Minnesota gasoline excise tax is $0.25 per gallon and the surcharge is $0.035 per gallon for a combined rate of $0.285 per gallon.

Petroleum Tank Cleanup Fee for May-August 2024

The Minnesota Petrofund Board notified the Minnesota Department of Revenue that we must collect the Petroleum Tank Cleanup Fee for May, June, July, and August 2024.


Please include the $.02 per gallon fee when you file these four returns.

Special Fuel Dealers

You do not report the fee. Your supplier will charge the $.02 per gallon fee when you purchase fuel May through August. This will show on your invoices.
