IRS Cracks Down on Fuel Tax Exemptions

A recent “special alert” to the ACPA membership informed members about increased scrutiny by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on concrete pumping companies who have filed for refunds of federal fuel excise tax. In each instance, it appeared the concrete pumping company incorrectly applied for, and received, a refund of the federal fuel tax they paid based on a portion of fuel consumed while in PTO. While many states allow for a portion or percentage of state fuel tax to be refunded for off-road or PTO use, currently there is no such type of federal exemption allowable.

Three Areas for Improvement: Simple Ways to become a better risk

When it comes to controlling how much your insurance policy costs year over year, there are some things you can control—and some things you can’t. Market trends, nuclear verdicts, investment returns—they’re all factors that every insurance buyer is subject to, so there isn’t much you can do to change their impact. However, it’s not all out of your control. There are always at least three areas where you can make small changes that can have a big impact on your business—and make you a better risk.
