 OUTSTANDING News For Diesel Vehicle Owners in TN

Today Govenor Bredesen authorized the use of "RED DYE" Off Road diesel in private vehicles for use on public roads in an effort to free up available supplies of diesel fuel. This executive order is in effect from today until the 15th of September 2005.

I have the email notification sent out by the TN Dept. Of Revenue but it is a .pdf file and I cannot find their link in the web for it. I can email the .pdf file to anyone who would like it for a hard copy. I called the TN Dept. Of Revenue and confirmed this information and they did indeed confirm it. If you have off road diesel stored up; now is the time to use it.

Just a follow up post to clarify that you will still have to pay sales tax on the red dye diesel or show proof of exemption. Purchases should keep and be able to show a receipt verifying that they have paid the sales tax if need be.

Just wanted to bump this back up to the top for my fellow Tennesseans in the event that any of you are having problems finding diesel fuel available. Supplies are running low is scattered areas, and this is an option that most folks are not aware of.

This will undoubtedly cause the Government down the road, so to speak.

Once it is 'legal' to run off-road diesel, it will be VERY difficult later on to say when the dyed fuel was put in the tank.

Glad they are doing something finally to ease the shortages.

Best of luck.

Operators of vehicles burning red dye off road diesel will still be required to show a receipt showing where and when the diesel was purchased AND that the 7% sales tax was paid. The Federal govt. has suspended restrictions on use of red dye diesel in all the states in which a state of emergency has been declared.

Since there are no links to the Emergency Notice annoucement in TN, here is a cut and paste of the announcement:




STATE OF TENNESSEE
DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE
PHIL BREDESEN ANDREW JACKSON STATE OFFICE BUILDING LOREN L. CHUMLEY
Governor NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE 37242 Commissioner

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SEPTEMBER 2, 2005

EMERGENCY NOTICE INSTRUCTIONS ON SALE OF DYED DIESEL FUEL

Following Governor Bredesen's announcement yesterday that the state is taking steps to
increase the availability of diesel fuel in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, this is to
address Tennessee's treatment on the sale of dyed diesel fuel. The Internal Revenue
Service is expected to issue guidance for federal tax purposes later today.
The injection of red dye into diesel fuel indicates that no motor fuel tax has been paid on
the diesel. There are generally broad restrictions on the sale and use of this fuel. The
restrictions that generally apply to the sale of this dyed diesel fuel are relaxed for state
law purposes for fuel that is sold from September 1 through September 15, 2005.
Tennessee is suspending enforcement of provisions of its law governing the use of dyed
fuel for on-road purposes from now until September 15. Tennessee's inspectors will be
removed from the field and assigned to other duties. Retailers, suppliers and other
sellers of dyed fuel are expected to collect and pay over the sales tax on the sale of
dyed fuel. If tax is not collected, the consumer is expected to pay use tax on the
fuel.
As a general rule, retail sales of dyed diesel fuel will be subject to the 7.00% state sales
tax and are exempt from local sales tax. Examples of taxable sales include:

• Sales of dyed diesel to contractors for use in machinery and equipment

• Sales of dyed diesel to contract bus or other transportation providers,

• even for government contracts

• Sales of dyed diesel to loggers

• Sales of dyed diesel for use in boats, vessels, and railroad locomotives

• Sales of dyed diesel to all other consumers, for any purpose, who do not have a
sales and use tax exemption certificate

• Sales of dyed diesel for on-road use during the period established by the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency (September 1 – September 15, 2005).
However, a limited number of exemptions from the 7.00% state sales tax may apply.
Examples of exempt sales include:

• Sales of dyed diesel to farmers for use in qualified farm equipment.

• The vendor must have the farmer’s exemption certificate on file to support the
exemption.

• Sales of dyed diesel to the federal government, the state of Tennessee, and
counties and cities within Tennessee. The billing for the dyed diesel must be
made in the name of the government, paid for directly for the government and
covered by the governmental exemption certificate.

• Sales of dyed diesel to qualified exempt organizations. Again, the billing must be
made in the name of the organization, paid for by the exempt organization and
covered by the appropriate exemption certificate.

• Sales to manufacturers. Diesel-powered industrial machinery used in
the production of a product for sale on the premises of the manufacturer is subject
to a 1.50% state sales tax, but no local tax.

• The vendor must have the manufacturer’s industrial machinery authorization
certificate to support the reduced rate.

If a proper exemption is submitted, the seller DOES NOT need to collect sales tax.

A penalty will not be levied by the State of Tennessee for red dyed fuel found as long as
sales tax has been paid.

The purchaser should maintain receipts to verify that
appropriate sales tax has been paid or that an exemption applies.

Randy, my point was not about today's use of dyed fuel, but potentially tomorrow's use of it.

Right now if them 'Revenuers' find red dye around the fuel filter of your truck, you're up the creek.

If however, you go out today, and buy a tank of dyed fuel and pay the tax, how does the DOT inspector know when that red dye got there when he stops you next December and sees red dye around the filter? Does he even bother to give you a fine knowing you can easily show that you got the dye there legally back in September?

I am not advocating, and sincerely hope that nobody does cheat, but it sure opens the door for those with their minds set on cheating the system.

Especially when some of those states involved will need every penny they can lay their hands on to rebuild, let alone not go bust without the other incomes they had come to depend on.

IMHO, cheating a Gov. under these circumstances is paramount to treason or looting.

Best of luck.

Murf, I understood what you meant and I agree. I think the intent was to make available as much fuel as possible. There are a lot of areas that are out of or running low on diesel fuel and I just wanted to get the word out to folks that may be in these areas that this option is available. Under normal circumstances, the fines are outrageously high and just not worth the risk. In this case, ANY fuel is better than none.

I have friends in Mississippi and they are telling me that generators, fuel, and the big item is firearms & ammunition. The looting is evidently getting very bad and folks need firearms & ammunition to protect themselves and what's left of their homes.

Randy, we're on the same page with this one.

I watched "The ragin' Cajun" Lt. Gen. Honor on CNN, barking orders at his troops to sling their weapons and stop pointing them at people as the convoys of food moved through NO under armed guard.

IMHO this was exactly the WRONG thing to do, a couple of bursts from the 7.62mm in the door of a Blackhawk doing a 'low & slow over' in certain areas would go along ways towards crime prevention.

Best of luck.
