Q: I purchased heating oil from you in 2017; do I qualify for a state tax credit?

A: Yes. The New York State Clean Heating Fuel Tax Credit has been extended through 2020. With this tax credit, you can take 1¢ for each percent of biodiesel that’s blended with your conventional heating oil.

Because Burt’s Reliable blends its heating oil with 20% biofuel (the cleanest burning fuel available), our customers qualify for the maximum tax credit — 20¢ per gallon. Thanks to this tax credit (and our commitment to offering clean-burning, efficient fuel), a typical Burt’s customer can save about $150 each year.
