The benefits of using CNG and LNG, compressed and liquefied natural gas are clean, domestically produced alternative fuels. Using these fuels in natural gas vehicles increases energy security and can lower emissions. Many farmers and business owners in the trucking and transportation industry are making the switch to these more efficient and lower-cost fuels. The federal government is also an advocate of these alternative fuels and has begun offering tax credits to businesses who use alternative fuels or who build fueling stations.

If this is an option you have been thinking about but don’t know where to start we can guide you and your business in the direction that is right for you. We have researched the Federal Excise Tax Liabilities in selling and using Alternative Fuels. We can keep you updated on the current Fuel Tax Credits and have the experience with reporting and tax filing.
