Alternative Fueling Infrastructure Tax Credit

Expired: 12/31/2011

The Michigan Department of Energy, Labor and Economic Growth (DELEG) offers an income tax credit to fueling station owners who convert existing fuel delivery systems or install new systems to provide E85 or biodiesel blends to the public. The tax credit is for 30% of the eligible costs of an installed or converted fuel delivery system with a maximum tax credit of $20,000 per applicant. To qualify, a station owner must apply for a certificate of eligibility from DELEG and provide documentation for the equipment purchased. Each installation will be inspected to ensure all work has been completed and E85 or biodiesel is being dispensed to the public. Any federal and state grants and incentives the station owner receives will be subtracted from the cost of the project before computing the amount of the tax credit. Federal tax credits do not need to be subtracted when determining the tax credit amount. The tax credit is available for projects completed between January 1, 2009, and December 31, 2011.
