Biofuel Blending Equipment Tax Exemption

Qualified equipment used for storing and blending petroleum-based fuel with biodiesel, ethanol, or other biofuel is exempt from state property taxes. The exemption begins at the time of installation at a fuel terminal, refinery, or biofuel production plant, and ends 10 taxable years following the year in which the equipment was installed. Equipment used only for denaturing ethyl alcohol is not eligible. (Reference Kansas Statutes 79-232 and 79-32,251)
