Fuel tax credits gap

The fuel tax credits (FTC) gap is an estimation of the difference between the value of actual fuel tax credits claimed by taxpayers and the value of claims taxpayers are entitled to under the law, for a defined period.

Key findings

  • The net FTC gap in 2013–14 is estimated to be $68 million which is less than 2% of fuel tax credits claimed. The gap arises from taxpayers claiming more fuel tax credits than they are entitled to.
  • The gross FTC gap is estimated to be 1.5%.
