GAS TAX REFUND FOR 2016-2017 SEASON

The Inlet Barnstormers continues to need your help to make the gas tax refund a success.  The form can be used to apply for a New York State gas tax refund!  All those gallons of gas that YOU use on the snowmobile trails include sales tax that the club can get refunded to the club to buy equipment and for trail maintenance etc.  The form is easy to fill out and is self explanatory.   You do have to buy the gas in New York.   The place you bought the gas, date, and amount of gallons are the entries that are required on the form and you should attach the gas receipt for each purchase that you put on the form.  When you fill up a page you must sign it on the bottom which gives the Inlet Barnstormer permission to apply for the sales tax refund for the gas you purchased.  Please make a copy of the form before you start filling it out so that you always have a blank sheet to start again when you have filled up the first sheet.  THAT’S IT!  So send the completed forms to the address on the bottom of the GAS TAX form!   The club thanks you in advance for your help.
