Commonwealth of Virginia Department of Motor VehiclesDo you have to purchase the gas from a marina to get the refund or can you go to any gas station, fill your boat and save the receipts?
I believe it asks for the sellers name on the receipt not yours.I'm filling out the form and its states that the purchaser's name must be on each invoice/ticket/receipt and my name does not appear on any of the receipts. Does thes mean that I'm out of luck, is this required, or can I just write my name on the receipt? My receipts are the standard credit card kind. Thanks
Thats is one of the things but when I was reviewing the form and the first thing listed is that it must include the purchaser's name on the receipt. I guess I'll send them in and hope they will take them. Maybe someone will know if that is manditory because none of my receipts have my name on them and I'm not even sure if I reguested my name to be on the receipt that gas stations are even equiped to do so.
I still do not see where they ask for your name on the receipts. It asks for the applicant's name and boat owners name on the form.Thats is one of the things but when I was reviewing the form and the first thing listed is that it must include the purchaser's name on the receipt.

For some reason I cannot get the image to come up from DMV but its not on the form its on the instructions.I still do not see where they ask for your name on the receipts. It asks for the applicant's name and boat owners name on the form.
When it come to the receipts I only see where they ask for the sellers name.
Course I am going a little blind in my old age.)
Can you point out on the form where they ask for your name on the receipts ?
Thanks for the info. That is different from the directions I have so I'll just send them in.Here is what dmv has on their web site.
Fuels Tax Refund
Motor fuel (gasoline and diesel) that is purchased and used in a recreational or pleasure boat or ship or used in commercial watercraft is eligible for a refund of all or part of the Virginia motor fuel tax that was paid. The Virginia tax is 17.5 cents per gallon for gasoline and 16 cents per gallon for diesel.
The fuel must be purchased in the Commonwealth of Virginia and the application must have receipts/tickets/invoices attached that show the:
Exact date of purchase, which cannot exceed 12 months prior to the date of application for refund;
Seller's name and address from which the fuel was purchased;
Number of gallons of fuel purchased (each purchase must be for 5 gallons or more);
Type of fuel purchased; and
Amount paid for fuel (diesel purchases must show the amount of state tax paid).
Photocopies of receipts and receipts marked duplicate are not eligible for a refund. Please be sure your receipts/tickets/invoices meet these requirements when applying for a refund.
Most marinas in Virginia sell diesel fuel that is dyed. Dyed diesel fuel is not subject to the Virginia Fuels tax and therefore, is not eligible for a refund.
The refund for fuel used in boats or watercraft can be requested from the Department of Motor Vehicles by downloading and printing the Application for Fuels Tax Refund for Fuel Used in Boats or Watercraft Form (TS-217).
Fuels tax refunds for agricultural uses, non-highway equipment and other uses permitted by statute can be requested on the Application for Fuels Tax Refund Form (TS-216).
The completed application with attached receipts/tickets/invoices should be mailed to:
