Georgia suspends motor fuel excise tax through May 31


Temporary relief at the pumps has arrived with a temporary reduction in Georgia’s motor fuel sales tax.

Governor Brian Kemp on Friday signed House Bill 304, which suspended the tax through May 31. The tax suspension took effect at 5 p.m. Friday.

This sales tax reprieve applies to gasoline, clear diesel, aviation gasoline, liquid propane gas, gasohol, ethanol, liquified natural gas and compressed natural gas.

Officials say motor fuels sold for off-highway use such as jet fuel and dyed diesel are typically not subject to the state’s motor fuel excise tax.
