What you need to know

On 1 July 2018, a 10 cent per litre regional fuel tax on diesel and petrol came into effect in Auckland. The regional fuel tax intends to raise revenue from road users for transport projects in Auckland.

Following the introduction of the regional fuel tax in Auckland we carried out a review to help determine which off-road uses of fuel should be eligible for a regional fuel tax rebate. We also reviewed the situations where people can claim a refund of petrol excise duty (PED). As a result of this work, the range of situations where someone may claim a regional fuel tax rebate was expanded. We released our final report in March 2020.
