(January 31, 2020) — In December 2019, the National Propane Gas Association (NPGA) played a critical role in the reinstatement of the Alternative Fuel Tax Credit and the Alternative Fuel Refueling Property Credit. These credits are estimated to be worth more than $500 million dollars to the propane industry. In its NPGA Legislative Report released today, the NPGA advises its members not to leave money, on the table.
Alternative Propane Autogas Fuel Tax Credits reinstated in 2020 and retroactive credit allowed for 2018 and 2019 reports BPN the propane industry's leading source for news since 1939
