Saskatchewan Information Notice on Lease Fuel Allowance for Natural Gas Producers

Tax Development Jun 28, 2013

An information notice discussing the Provincial Sales Tax and its application to lease fuel (i.e. natural gas consumed by producers at a well site) has been issued by Saskatchewan. Natural gas producers have been given the authority to deduct a 10% allowance when calculating the tax due on the total volume of metered lease fuel consumed at the facility to account for the exemption available on lease fuel used for heating purposes in dehydrators or heaters.
