How do we apply for our interstate user diesel fuel license?
Step 1: Make sure you have the documents you need to send with your application

Message from the Executive Director
We appreciate the fact that as the operator of a business, you are busy and have many responsibilities. You are responsible for income and fuel tax payments and for a variety of other obligations, such as payroll taxes, insurance, and employee benefits. For that reason, we want to make it as easy as possible for you to work with us. As you can see on page 7, we provide many services to help you with your questions. If you are unable to find the answers you need, please call our Information Center. Our trained representatives will be glad to help.

You will need to send us photocopies of certain documents with your application. Please read the short checklist in the shaded box on the next page. If you don't have the documents you need, please call our Fuel Taxes Division at 916-322-9669 or our Information Center at 800-400-7115 (listen for "fuel taxes").

Step 4: After we approve your application
You should receive your license approximately two weeks after we have received your fully completed application. There is no charge for the license. When you receive your license, you should make a photocopy and carry it in your vehicle(s).

We will let you know whether you must file returns on a quarterly or annual basis. Your return is due on or before the last day of the month following your reporting period.
