Gas tax?

Postby chriswoodut » Sun Dec 02, 2018 12:59 pm

So, when we process reimbursements we can enter the sales tax which gets reimbursed to the church from the state (Utah). The sales tax does not count against our budgets (I called HQ and asked about that).

However, with gas receipts we don't see any tax info. I'm guessing gas tax isn't treated the same as sales tax but I'm curious enough to throw the idea out here. Anybody know if it's possible to put tax info in MLS so it doesn't get deducted from our budgets?

Each state and local entity can impose their own sales tax on gasoline. Each state is different. Here in Texas there is no sales tax imposed on gasoline. There are, however, state and federal excise taxes included in the sales price.

A quick search online indicates there is only federal and state excise taxes for motor gas sales in Utah. I could find no sales tax for motor gas.
