Idaho State Tax Commission

Fuels Terminal Operators

Idaho fuel is either:

  • Imported into Idaho by pipeline, truck, train , or
  • Produced at biodiesel and ethanol plants

Imported fuel is stored in fuel terminals recognized by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

Idaho producers can have their production facility recognized as an Idaho terminal. (Read more in the Idaho Production Plants guide.)

Terminal operators must file a monthly report with the Tax Commission. Form 1452, Idaho Terminal Operator Report, is due the last day of the month following the tax period.


The October 2018 tax return is due November 30, 2018.

The Form 1452 isn't available on this website. We mail it with personalized information for each terminal operator.
