Excise and Motor Fuels Tax


Federal and state excise taxes are levied on a wide variety of items – such as heavy vehicles, cable and communication equipment, tires, airline tickets, motor fuel, alcohol, tobacco, and a whole host of other items.

Companies often do not have the resources to comply with the reporting and compliance requirements on these taxes or the expertise to identify refunds that can be recovered.

Our state and local tax professionals can perform a detailed review of your company’s in-house excise tax function to identify refund opportunities, mitigate risk, and advise on your internal processes.  These services include:

  • Cash refund recovery opportunities
  • Audit defense assistance
  • Compliance assistance
  • Risk mitigation
  • Process review and technology automation
