Import Duty for Fuel Ethanol
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection imposes a 2.5% ad valorem tariff on the import of ethanol for use in fuel which is based on the percent volume of the fuel at the time of transaction. Importers of ethanol must follow the same regulations as domestic producers, including registering with the IRS. (Reference Public Laws 96-499, 99-514, 109-423, and 110-234)
