Regional fuel tax

From 21 December 2018, new regulations to the Land Transport Management (Regional Fuel Tax) Amendment Regulations (No 2) 2018 will come into effect for the Auckland regional fuel tax scheme area regarding rebate and exemption entitlements.

There will be rebate and exemption entitlements for diesel used for home heating by private individuals; diesel used for electricity generation by non-commercial organisations; petrol and diesel used in road registered vehicles that are used exclusively or predominantly off road; and petrol and diesel supplied inside a regional fuel tax scheme area but distributed outside the regional fuel tax scheme area.

There are system changes required to process these new rebate and exemption entitlements regulation and due to this the NZ Transport Agency will not be processing any new rebates or exemptions regarding these new regulations until March 2019.

If you think you may be eligible, please retain any documents that show proof of purchase of delivery of petrol and diesel (and their bio-variants) relating to the new regulations.

You can view the new regulations here: Land Transport Management (Regional Fuel Tax) Amendment Regulations (No 2) 2018.(external link)

Please come back to this webpage for more information from 1 March 2019.

The Auckland regional fuel tax scheme began on 1 July 2018, at a rate of 10 cents per litre (plus GST), on petrol, diesel and their bio-variants. This tax supports transport projects that would otherwise be delayed or not funded.

On this site you’ll find tools and helpful information about eligibility for a rebate, how to claim a rebate, record keeping tips and more.
