+ Taxes

JHL’s primary business involves the sale of motor fuel products; and with the sale of motor fuel products comes the imposition of federal and state motor fuel excise taxes - as well as applicable state and local sales taxes and other regulatory and environmental fees.  JHL is a taxable fuel registrant as defined by the IRS tax code and has the registration number of 2005-002490-AB-NB-K-M.  In addition, JHL is a licensed fuel supplier in the states of Michigan and Texas and has nexus in only those two states where sales occur.

The federal government through the Internal Revenue Service regulates the collection of federal excise taxes on motor fuel.  Through the publications produced by the IRS, rules pertaining to the federal laws for the assessment and collection of federal motor fuel tax are listed in plain English.  IRS Publication 510 is the first place to look for guidance on federal motor fuel excise taxes as well as the IRS website listed below {part of the resources listed}.

JHL operates in the State of Texas and the State of Michigan.  All sales occur in those two states alone.  Sales of motor fuel in Texas and Michigan are charged the appropriate state motor fuel excise tax and sales tax based on the customer’s tax exempt or non-exempt status which can vary greatly. Exemptions from federal or state motor fuel excise tax requires proper documentation and are granted as proscribed by law.  Sales tax is levied against sales made in Texas and Michigan.  All sales of motor fuel products occur at our facilities on a FOB Origin basis from either Texas or Michigan.
