An aggressive plan by New York State to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 40 percent from 1990 levels by 2030 turns out to be great news for you if you use Bioheat® in your eastern Long Island home.
In case you didn’t know (or forgot), a per-gallon Clean Fuel Credit is available on your NY State income taxes for your annual Bioheat purchases; the amount of the credit is $.01 per percentage point of biodiesel in your Bioheat heating oil blend (the “B” number on your Bioheat…B5 = five percent biodiesel, B10 = 10 percent, etc.) times the number gallons you purchased.
So, for example, if used 750 gallons of B20 Natural Heating Oil® from Burt’s Reliable (our brand of Bioheat)in 2019, you qualify for a $150 clean fuel tax credit ($.20 X 750 = $150)!
We’ve gathered instructions for applying for your Clean Fuel Credit, as well as Form IT-241 Claim for Clean Heating Fuel Credit) here on our website; it is also available on the NY State Department of Taxation and Finance website.
If you’re a Burt’s Reliable customer, you may have already received an annual usage statement listing all deliveries by date and gallons delivered; simply use these figures to apply for the Clean Fuel Credit.
