Fuel tax credits – non business

This information is relevant if you don't claim your fuel tax credits on an activity statement.

You may have made a mistake on a previous claim – such as a calculation error – or used the fuel in a different way than originally intended and need to make an adjustment. Or you may also have found a processing error we’ve made.

If you simply forget to claim fuel tax credits that you are entitled to, this is not a mistake – you can claim for the quantity you omitted on a later claim form.

To correct an error you have made on a submitted claim form, such as a calculation error, you can write to us. Your letter must be signed by you or a person authorised to act on your behalf and must contain:

  • your name and contact details
  • EIN, TFN or ABN
  • the start and end date for the return period in which the error occurred
  • the fuel type and activity that the error occurred with
  • the amount of the error in eligible litres (or kilograms)
  • the reason for the error

Where we amend an earlier assessment of your fuel tax credit amount we'll issue a notice of amended assessment.

Product stewardship for oil program

  • details of the amendment required
