North Carolina Department of Revenue Waives Diesel Fuel Penalty Due to Hurricane Florence

— Written By NC State Extension

UPDATE:  This is related to  Executive Order No. 60: Amending Executive Order No. 57 to Permit Sale, Distribution, and Use of Certain Nonhighway Diesel Fuels in Support of Hurricane Florence Relief Efforts


The North Carolina Department of Revenue, in response to diesel fuel supply interruptions resulting from Hurricane Florence, 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 in North Carolina 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 September 17, 2018 and will remain in effect through September 28, 2018.
