Fuel Tax Exemption for Indians
The Program for Administering the Fuel Tax Exemption for Indians was introduced so that Indians, band councils and band-empowered entities that are registered for the Program can purchase fuel at service stations situated on reserves or in Indian settlements in Québec without having to pay the fuel tax, provided the fuel is intended for their own use. The Program has been in effect since July 1, 2011.
The following tables list the Indian reserves and settlements in Québec.
- Kitigan Zibi
- La Romaine
- Hunter's Point
To benefit from the Program, Indians, band councils, tribal councils and band-empowered entities must register to obtain an Attestation d'inscription (registration card).
The new Program for Administering the Consumption Tax Exemption for First Nations will come into effect on July 1, 2023.
Under this program, First Nations members will be able to benefit from the exemption they are entitled to when buying alcoholic beverages from a participating retail dealer (convenience store or grocery store) situated on a reserve or in a First Nations settlement in Québec.
Note that the new program will gradually replace the Program for Administering the Fuel Tax Exemption for Indians, while maintaining the fuel tax exemption under the same conditions as before.
