A fuel tax liability is created when the amount of fuel consumed is larger than the amount of fuel purchased in a particular state during any one-tax quarter. If the state charges a fuel surcharge over and above the specific fuel tax levied, it will generally be charged on the total amount of fuel consumed within that state during that same quarter regardless of the amount of fuel purchased within that same state. Anytime there is more fuel purchased than consumed in a particular state during a tax quarter a fuel tax credit is created and is used to offset any fuel tax liability during that same quarter.
