Tax Incentives for Propane Autogas

The alternative fuel infrastructure tax credit for alternative fuel refueling facilities is available through December 31, 2011 to businesses and fueling station owners who install qualifying equipment, including propane tanks and dispensers.  This federal credit provides 30% of the refueling equipment cost up to $30,000 for propane autogas (on-road motor vehicle) refueling.  Propane fueling station owners who install qualified equipment at multiple sites are allowed to use the credit towards each location.  Refueling stations do not need to provide open public access to the site to qualify, private and fleet refueling stations are also eligible.

Other credits for propane autogas are available on the state and local level.  These websites provide an overview of some that are available nationwide:

    Propane gas is non-toxic. Although natural gas emits less carbon dioxide into the air when burned than propane gas does, natural gas does not break down in the atmosphere, which contributes to global warming. Since propane gas is insoluble and toxin-free, it poses very little risk to pollution.
