Missouri DOR: Keep Your Gas Tax Receipts for Three Years
The Missouri Director of Revenue encourages you to electronically file a state gasoline tax refund.
Missouri lawmakers approved a 2021 state gasoline tax increase, and state Department of Revenue (DOR) Director Wayne Wallingford notes the bill included a refund provision .
“We just trust the taxpayers to fill out the form with the correct information and then just save the receipts for a later date. But they only need to keep them for three years, and we certainly don’t want them here at the (Missouri) Capitol,” Wallingford said.
Missouri’s 2021 gasoline tax increase requires motorists to keep gasoline receipts and records for three years. There’s a three-page form on the DOR’s website that you’ll need to fill out to get a refund.
“If you do it electronically, we’re estimating right now, we don’t really know how many people are going to do it. But we just estimate you should get it electronically in about five business days,” says Wallingford.
Last year’s bipartisan bill signed into law by Governor Parson increases Missouri’s gasoline tax by 12.5 cents per gallon by 2025.
