Gasoline Tax

March 23, 2017


Notice to Sellers of Aviation Fuel under the Gasoline Tax Act

Effective April 1, 2017, at 12:01 a.m., the Ontario tax rate on aviation fuel increases from 5.7 cents to 6.7 cents per litre. Tax at the increased rate must be collected and remitted on all sales occurring on or after April 1. This requirement includes sales of any aviation fuel held on April 1, 2017 that had been acquired at the lower tax rate.

The April 2017 tax returns for designated gasoline tax collectors and registered importers reflect the new tax rate of 6.7 cents per litre for aviation fuel. Please ensure your calculations use the new rate.

If you have any questions regarding this matter, please call 1‑866‑668‑8297 ext. 16011.
