Maryland Motor Fuel Tax Notice

Publication #3-98
July 24, 1998

To: Service Station Dealers

Senate Bill 605, passed by the 1998 General Assembly, suspends the voluntary allowance uniformity provision for producers, refiners and wholesalers of motor fuel products for a two-year period. The legislation also requires that the Maryland Comptroller's Office conduct a study on the effects of temporary voluntary allowances on pricing practices in the gasoline market between July 1, 1998 and December 31, 1998.

The House Committee on Economic Matters has decided that the WMDA Service Station Association should act as a clearinghouse for dealers to report on the effects of the legislation. Therefore, please provide Roy Littlefield or Harry Murphy at the Association with the particulars of any nonuniform price adjustments or abnormal pricing situations that come to your attention. They will compile the information to send to us.
