Federal Energy Tax Policy
This research paper from 2006 offers a good summary of current federal tax policy – taxes and tax credits – toward energy.
Things I learned reading it include:
- There is a federal “gas guzzler” tax on vehicles than don’t get good gas mileage – but SUVS, minivans, and pickup trucks are exempted.
- By far the largest tax credit/expenditure is the alcohol fuel credit (chart on page 13)
