Turbotax amended return Off-highway business use. Turbotax amended return Uses other than as a fuel in a propulsion engine, such as home use.

Turbotax amended return Farm. Turbotax amended return   A farm includes livestock, dairy, fish, poultry, fruit, fur-bearing animals, and truck farms, orchards, plantations, ranches, nurseries, ranges, and feed yards for finishing cattle.

Turbotax amended return Farming purposes. Turbotax amended return   As the owner, tenant, or operator and the ultimate purchaser of fuel that you purchased, you use the fuel on a farm for farming purposes if you use it in any of the following ways. Turbotax amended return To cultivate the soil or to raise or harvest any agricultural or horticultural commodity. Turbotax amended return To raise, shear, feed, care for, train, or manage livestock, bees, poultry, fur-bearing animals, or wildlife. Turbotax amended return To operate, manage, conserve, improve, or maintain your farm and its tools and equipment. Turbotax amended return To handle, dry, pack, grade, or store any raw agricultural or horticultural commodity. Turbotax amended return For this use to qualify, you must have produced more than half the commodity so treated during the tax year. Turbotax amended return The more-than-one-half test applies separately to each commodity. Turbotax amended return Commodity means a single raw product. Turbotax amended return For example, apples and peaches are two separate commodities. Turbotax amended return To plant, cultivate, care for, or cut trees or to prepare (other than sawing logs into lumber, chipping, or other milling) trees for market, but only if these activities are incidental to your farming operations. Turbotax amended return Your tree operations are incidental only if they are minor in nature when compared to the total farming operations. Turbotax amended return   If any other person, such as a neighbor or custom operator (independent contractor), performs a service for you on your farm for any of the purposes included in list items (1) or (2), above, you are considered to be the ultimate purchaser who used the fuel on a farm for farming purposes. Turbotax amended return Therefore, you can still claim the credit or refund for the fuel so used. Turbotax amended return However, see Custom application of fertilizer and pesticide, later. Turbotax amended return If the other person performs any other services for you on your farm for purposes not included in list items (1) or (2) above, no one can claim the credit or refund for fuel used on your farm for those other services. Turbotax amended return Buyer of fuel, including undyed diesel fuel or undyed kerosene. Turbotax amended return   If doubt exists whether the owner, tenant, or operator of the farm bought the fuel, determine who actually bore the cost of the fuel. Turbotax amended return For example, if the owner of a farm and his or her tenant equally share the cost of gasoline used on the farm, each can claim a credit for the tax on half the fuel used. Turbotax amended return Undyed diesel fuel, undyed kerosene, and Other Fuels (including alternative fuel). Turbotax amended return   Usually, the farmer is the only person who can make a claim for credit or refund for the tax on undyed diesel fuel, undyed kerosene, or other fuels (including alternative fuel) used for farming purposes. Turbotax amended return However, see Custom application of fertilizer and pesticide, next. Turbotax amended return Also see Dyed Diesel Fuel and Dyed Kerosene, later. Turbotax amended return Example. Turbotax amended return Farm owner Haleigh Blue hired custom operator Tyler Steele to cultivate the soil on her farm. Turbotax amended return Tyler used 200 gallons of undyed diesel fuel that he purchased to perform the work on Haleigh's farm. Turbotax amended return In addition, Haleigh hired contractor Lee Brown to pack and store her apple crop. Turbotax amended return Lee bought 25 gallons of undyed diesel fuel to use in packing the apples. Turbotax amended return Haleigh can claim the credit for the 200 gallons of undyed diesel fuel used by Tyler on her farm because it qualifies as fuel used on the farm for farming purposes. Turbotax amended return No one can claim a credit for the 25 gallons used by Lee because that fuel was not used for a farming purpose included in list items (1) or (2), above. Turbotax amended return In the above example, both Tyler Steele and Lee Brown could have purchased dyed (untaxed) diesel fuel for their tasks. Turbotax amended return Custom application of fertilizer and pesticide. Turbotax amended return   Fuel used on a farm for farming purposes includes fuel used in the application (including aerial application) of fertilizer, pesticides, or other substances. Turbotax amended return Generally, the applicator is treated as having used the fuel on a farm for farming purposes. Turbotax amended return For applicators using highway vehicles, only the fuel used on the farm is exempt. Turbotax amended return Fuel used traveling on the highway to and from the farm is taxable. Turbotax amended return Fuel used by an aerial applicator for the direct flight between the airfield and one or more farms is treated as used for a farming purpose. Turbotax amended return For aviation gasoline, the aerial applicator makes the claim as the ultimate purchaser. Turbotax amended return For kerosene used in aviation, the ultimate purchaser may make the claim or waive the right to make the claim to the registered ultimate vendor. Turbotax amended return A sample waiver is included as Model Waiver L in the appendix of Publication 510. Turbotax amended return A registered ultimate vendor is the person who sells undyed diesel fuel, undyed kerosene, or kerosene for use in aviation to the user (ultimate purchaser) of the fuel for use on a farm for farming purposes. Turbotax amended return To claim a credit or refund of tax, the ultimate vendor must be registered with the Internal Revenue Service at the time the claim is made. Turbotax amended return However, registered ultimate vendors cannot make claims for undyed diesel fuel and undyed kerosene sold for use on a farm for farming purposes. Turbotax amended return Fuel not used for farming. Turbotax amended return   You do not use fuel on a farm for farming purposes when you use it in any of the following ways. Turbotax amended return Off the farm, such as on the highway or in noncommercial aviation, even if the fuel is used in transporting livestock, feed, crops, or equipment. Turbotax amended return For personal use, such as lawn mowing. Turbotax amended return In processing, packaging, freezing, or canning operations. Turbotax amended return In processing crude gum into gum spirits of turpentine or gum resin or in processing maple sap into maple syrup or maple sugar. Turbotax amended return All-terrain vehicles (ATVs). Turbotax amended return   Fuel used in ATVs on a farm for farming purposes, discussed earlier, is eligible for a credit or refund of excise taxes on the fuel. Turbotax amended return Fuel used in ATVs for nonfarming purposes is not eligible for a credit or refund of the taxes. Turbotax amended return If ATVs are used both for farming and nonfarming purposes, only that portion of the fuel used for farming purposes is eligible for the credit or refund. Turbotax amended return Dyed Diesel Fuel and Dyed Kerosene If you purchase dyed diesel fuel or dyed kerosene for a nontaxable use, you must use it only on a farm for farming purposes or for other nontaxable purposes. Turbotax amended return For example, you should not use dyed diesel fuel in a truck that is used both on the farm for farming purposes and on the highway, even though the highway use is in connection with farm business. Turbotax amended return Excise tax applies to the fuel used by the truck on the highways. Turbotax amended return In this situation, undyed (taxed) fuel should be purchased for the truck. Turbotax amended return You should keep fuel records of the use of the truck on the farm for farming purposes, and for other uses. Turbotax amended return You may be eligible for a credit or refund for the excise tax on fuel used on the farm for farming purposes. Turbotax amended return Penalty. Turbotax amended return   A penalty is imposed on any person who knowingly uses, sells, or alters dyed diesel fuel or dyed kerosene for any purpose other than a nontaxable use. Turbotax amended return The penalty is the greater of $1,000 or $10 per gallon of the dyed diesel fuel or dyed kerosene involved. Turbotax amended return After the first violation, the $1,000 portion of the penalty increases depending on the number of violations. Turbotax amended return For more information on this penalty, see Publication 510. Turbotax amended return Fuels Used in Off-Highway Business Use You may be eligible to claim a credit or refund for the excise tax on fuel used in an off-highway business use. Turbotax amended return Off-highway business use. Turbotax amended return   This is any use of fuel in a trade or business or in an income-producing activity. Turbotax amended return The use must not be in a highway vehicle registered or required to be registered for use on public highways. Turbotax amended return Off-highway business use generally does not include any use in a recreational motorboat. Turbotax amended return Examples. Turbotax amended return   Off-highway business use includes the use of fuels in a trade or business in any of the following ways. Turbotax amended return In stationary machines such as generators, compressors, power saws, and similar equipment; For cleaning ; and In forklift trucks, bulldozers, and earthmovers. Turbotax amended return   Off-highway nonbusiness (taxable) use of fuel includes: use in minibikes, snowmobiles, power lawn mowers, chain saws, and other yard equipment. Turbotax amended return For more information, see Publication 510. Turbotax amended return Fuels Used for Household Purposes or Other Than as a Fuel for Propulsion Engines You may be eligible to claim a credit or refund for the excise tax on undyed diesel fuel or kerosene used for home heating, lighting, and cooking. Turbotax amended return This also applies to diesel fuel and kerosene used in a home generator to produce electricity for home use. Turbotax amended return Home use of a fuel does not include use in a propulsion engine and it is not considered an off-highway business use. Turbotax amended return How To Claim a Credit or Refund You may be able to claim a credit or refund of the excise tax on fuels you use for nontaxable uses. Turbotax amended return The basic rules for claiming credits and refunds are listed in Table 14-2 . Turbotax amended return Table 14-2.
