Advancing the Standards of Tax Administration
Each year, the motor fuels section holds four regional meetings, three uniformity meetings, and one annual meeting.
Motor Fuels Uniformity Project
Gasoline and diesel fuel are the primary power sources for most forms of transportation in the United States and the rest of the developed world. Taxes collected on these fuels are a vital part of every state’s revenue base, providing funding for transportation systems, public education, and other important programs. Motor Fuel taxes make up the financial base for the nation’s infrastructure of roads and highways.
