Municipal Retail Motor Fuel Tax Documents and Instructions

The City of Batavia enacted a municipal retail motor fuel tax (gasoline use tax) on retailers within the municipal borders on February 1, 2012. The tax was amended to $0.02 per gallon as of 2/1/16. The tax was amended to $0.03 cents per gallon as of 2/1/17.  The City of Batavia collects this tax directly from the retailer.

Effective February 1, 2017 this tax will be $0.03 per gallon.  There will also be new discounts available to the taxpayer beginning with the January return paid in February for those that file and/or pay online.  The discount will be 1/2% to file the return online and 1/2% to pay the tax online.  The discounts are offered to save City staff time in processing your return.  The discounts are only available if the online system below is used. This is the preferred method of payment and we ask that you file and pay online and save yourself some money as well.  Thank you
