Motor Fuel Taxes

Motor fuels reports compile the gallons reported on taxpayer returns (DR 7050) for licensed distributors and carriers of motor fuels in Colorado. In each report, gallons reflect what was actually tracked in the Colorado Fuel Tracking System for the report month. The Colorado excise tax collections by fuel type reflect net tax collections during the report month. Only statewide data is available for these taxes. Current motor fuel excise tax rates are posted on the Colorado Fuel Tracking System website. The motor fuels report methodology was revised beginning January 2016.
Please contact the Fuel Tax Unit at for questions about the motor fuels reports. Additional fuel tax information can be found on the Taxation Division website in the Fuel Tax section:
