Ask Congress to Extend the Biodiesel Tax Credit
Democratic lawmakers continue to negotiate a budget reconciliation package that they hope will include energy tax provisions (among other things). As part of that potential package, certain lawmakers are considering providing sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) special tax benefits that other fuels, such as biodiesel and renewable diesel, will not have, despite the fact that these over-the-road fuels are better for the environment than SAF.  Additionally, lawmakers are considering transitioning the biodiesel tax credit from a blenders' credit to a producers' credit. 

The biodiesel tax credit worked successfully to incentivize fuel retailers to buy and blend biofuels and build a robust renewable diesel industry in the United States. The incentive has been the most effective tax provision lowering carbon emissions for transportation fuels over the last two decades.  NATSO has urged lawmakers to extend the $1 per gallon biodiesel blenders' tax credit in any legislation that includes energy tax credits and to ensure tax parity for any new credits awarded for transportation fuels that compete for the same feedstocks (such as SAF). These other fuels should be entitled to the same tax treatment as biodiesel and renewable diesel – nothing more, nothing less. 

As Congress enters the final stretch of legislating before the August recess, we need you to reach out to your representatives in Washington and urge them to extend the biodiesel tax credit at the blenders' level and maintain parity between transportation energy tax credits that use the same feedstocks in any energy tax credit package they consider.
