New Jersey Statutes, Title: 54, TAXATION
Section: 54:39-150: Tax on fuel held in storage.
50. a. There is levied a tax on fuel held in storage as of the close of the business day preceding January 1, 2011. For the purpose of this section, "close of the business day" means the time at which the last transaction has occurred for that day. The tax on fuel shall be the tax rate specified by subsection a. of section 3 of P.L.2010, c.22 (C.54:39-103) for the type of fuel, multiplied by the gallons in storage of that type of fuel as of the close of the business day preceding January 1, 2011.
b. Persons in possession of fuel in storage as of the close of the business day immediately preceding January 1, 2011 shall:
(1) take an inventory at the close of the business day immediately preceding January 1, 2011;
(2) report the gallons listed in paragraph (1) of this subsection on forms provided by the director, not later than January 1, 2011; and
(3) Remit the tax levied under this section no later than July 1, 2011.
c. If tax due pursuant to subsection b. of this section is paid to the director on or before January 31, 2011, the person remitting the tax may deduct from that person's tax liability 10\% of the tax liability otherwise due.
d. In determining the amount of tax due under this section, a person may exclude the amount of fuel in dead storage in each storage tank. For the purposes of this section, "dead storage" means the amount of fuel that cannot be pumped out of a fuel storage tank because the motor fuel is below the mouth of the draw pipe. The amount of motor fuel in dead storage is 200 gallons for a tank with a capacity of less than 10,000 gallons and 400 gallons for a tank with a capacity of 10,000 gallons or more.
