The new federal Carbon Tax takes effect July 1, 2023, and it’s important that fishers and farmers are aware that they can get partial or full relief from the fuel charge at the time of delivery if they provide an exemption certificate to the person who delivers the fuel to you. Fishers and farmers need only complete the form and have the form on hand to present to the fuel supplier when fuel is being delivered.
