What fuels fees support
The State of Idaho uses fuels taxes and fees to:

The transfer fee funds the Idaho Petroleum Clean Water Trust Fund.
How fuels tax is paid
Licensed fuels distributors pay fuels tax to Idaho.
The cost of the fuels tax is included in the price paid for delivered fuel or fuels that consumers bought at the retail pump.
If you buy fuel that includes tax, but use it in a nontaxable way, you can get a refund.
