FUEL TAX ACT 2006
This Act provides a single system of fuel tax credits. Fuel tax credits are paid to reduce or remove the incidence of fuel tax levied on taxable fuels, ensuring that, generally, fuel tax is effectively only applied to:
Liability for fuel tax currently arises under the Excise Act 1901 , the Excise Tariff Act 1921 , the Customs Act 1901 and the Customs Tariff Act 1995 .
The administrative aspects of this Act (such as your rights, obligations and payment arrangements) are aligned as closely as possible to the administrative aspects of other indirect taxes (primarily, the GST), and other taxes administered by the Commissioner, to reduce your compliance costs.
