Motor vehicle fuel as defined by the City of Silverton includes gasoline, diesel, and any other flammable or combustible gas or liquid by whatever name such gas or liquid is known or sold, usable as fuel for the operation of motor vehicles, except gas, or liquid for purposes other than the propulsion of motor vehicles.
A dealer is any person who: 1) Imports or causes to be imported motor vehicle fuel for sale, use, or distribution in the City of Silverton; or 2) Produces, refines, manufactures, or compounds motor vehicle fuels in the City for use, distribution, or sale in the City; or 3) Acquires in the City for sale, use, or distribution in the City motor vehicle fuels with respect to which there has been no City of Silverton license tax previously incurred.
Any person who performs the acts of a dealer as described above. Generally, if you purchase fuel outside the City and transport it into the City using your own vehicles or by common carrier, you must be licensed. If you always buy fuel from another licensed dealer of the City, the tax will be included in the purchase price of the fuel and you need not be licensed with the City. However, the answer to this question is often not immediately apparent.
The tax must be collected for all fuel sold, used, or distributed on or after January 1, 2018.
