Regulatory Reminder: IRS Diesel Fuel and Kerosene Dispenser Label Requirements

The IRS requires all untaxed diesel fuel or untaxed kerosene dispensers to display specific labels describing the product and their taxable status and use. The IRS requires these labels to contain specific language that may not be altered or shortened in any way. EPA dispenser labels for low sulfur products are not a substitute for the IRS labels. The fine for failure to display the proper IRS label is $10 per gallon for every gallon contained in the storage tank at the time of violation. IRS enforcement of the dispenser label requirement is aggressive and ongoing. Click here to read the Regulatory report.
