Diesel Fuel Tax Proposal Advances in Arkansas State Legislature

February 05, 2007

LITTLE ROCK, AR – Legislation that would replace Arkansas’ 6-percent sales tax on the purchase of off-road diesel fuel with a six-cent per gallon tax won a House committee’s endorsement Jan. 31, according to the Ft. Smith Times Record newspaper. The House Committee on Agriculture, Forestry, and Economic Development endorsed House Bill 1202. The measure now goes to the full House for consideration. Supporters of the per-gallon diesel tax told committee members that the change in the off-road diesel is taxed would cost the state about $14.8 million annually, but that it was factored into Gov. Mike Beebe’s proposed balanced budget.
