Ray: Yes-- Everyone pays.... Indiana commercial fuel tax.
Generally, a business that operates commercial motor vehicles in the State of Indiana must pay a tax based upon the fuel usage. Vehicles must be registered with the Indiana Department of Revenue, and file quarterly tax returns. Non-commercial vehicles pay at the time of sale.
It now being strictly enforced-
"A 15-year-old Indiana State sales tax law is now being enforced. In the past, the State of Indiana required TA and Petro to post signs at the diesel pump stating, “Trucks Only” in order to exempt diesel transactions from the 7% sales tax. The State of Indiana has recently fined an Indiana TA truck stop for not requiring exemption certificates from all its exempt customers. The fine is in excess of $200,000 per location."
