The new Federal Fuel Charge (Carbon Tax) will be effective April 1st 2019.
There is an exemption for fuel that is sold to a farmer if the following criteria are met:
(a) the fuel is “qualifying farm fuel” (which is defined as gasoline or diesel that is for use exclusively in the operation of the farm). [Note that propane is not exempt for farmers];
(b) the fuel is delivered to the farmer at a farm (no exemptions at a cardlock or gas bar); AND
(c) the farmer provides (and the seller retains) an exemption certificate in this regard.
Please see the Form L402 Fuel Charge Exemption Certificate for Farmers (link below), as well as a Mock example with detailed instructions. Please complete the form as soon as possible to avoid being charged carbon tax on farm deliveries after April 1st. This form MUST BE SIGNED and can be mailed (Box 370, Winkler, MB, R6W 4B2), or dropped off at the Winkler Co-op Truckstop Location (hwy 14).
* IF WINKLER CO-OP HAS NOT RECEIVED THE SIGNED FORM BEFORE APRIL 1, 2019, YOU WILL NOT QUALIFY FOR THE CARBON TAX EXEMPTION *
Unfortunately, any product that is pulled from a cardlock or gas bar is not exempt from carbon tax. We are currently lobbying the government in order to make changes. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your business.
To those receiving fuel deliveries from Winkler Co-op, we invite you to print and fill out the Carbon Tax Exemption Form below and return it to us before April 1, 2019.
If you have any questions, please contact George at the Winkler Truckstop at 204-331-1557.
