A fuel surcharge lets the customer pay for part of the fuel used to transport his load.

How these work: The basis is that trucks get 6 miles to the gallon and diesel costs $1.95 per gallon, so shipping rates are calculated based on those numbers. If diesel costs more than $1.95 per gallon, the person paying the bill for the freight pays a surcharge per mile to help reimburse the driver.

If the national average price for diesel is $4.25 per gallon, you subtract $1.95 from it to get $2.30 per gallon; divide that by 6 and you get 38.3 cents per mile fuel surcharge. Multiply by the number of miles in the trip, and that's how much surcharge the customer will pay.

The YQ "tax" is not actually a government imposed tax but an airline surcharge. Typically, the YQ "tax" includes a security surcharge and/or a fuel surcharge.



A fuel surcharge is what most trucking companies and some business charge for fuel useage, usually based on mileage. This rate is calculated using the DOE (Dept. of Energy) website. That gives national averages. I not sure on exactly how the weekly amount is figured. But as of this date, its around .52 cents give or take. This amount is what offsets fuel costs involved with shipping.

No, the fuel surcharge charged my most carriers and other businesses today are not required by law. The business is trying to get some extra money to help them with the cost of gasoline/diesel fuel. If you don't want to pay it you will have to shop around for another carrier etc that doesn't carry it.


Fuel Surcharge (FSC)An additional charge assessed for the excessive cost in diesel fuel. The charge is a percentage of the base line haul charges on shipments rated per hundred pounds and a rate per mile for shipments rated for per mile. The surcharge is based based upon the US National Average Diesel Fuel Index. The fuel surcharge will remain in effect as long as the national average exceeds a benchmark of $1.15 per gallon.


That is the correct spelling of "surcharge" (an added fee).

First, decide how much your target price--the price you always want to pay out of pocket for fuel--is. Let's say your target is $2. Subtract that from the current national average diesel price. If it's $5 per gallon (God forbid), the difference is $3 per gallon. Then divide the difference by six because your truck is getting 6MPG on average. Right now you've got a 50 cents/mile fuel surcharge. And finally multiply that figure by the run length--if the run's 1000 miles, you'll tack on $500 in fuel surcharge to the bill. If you work for a trucking company, they normally fix the surcharge for a month--for June the rate is always going to be, say, 47 cents per mile no matter how high fuel gets.

Fuel surcharges are becoming more common due to increasing gasoline prices. The taxability of a fuel surcharge follows the taxability of the service provided or the product sold. (1) Sales price is the measure subject to sales tax and means the total amount of consideration, including cash, credit, property, and services, for which personal property or services are sold, leased, or rented, valued in money, whether received in money or otherwise, without any deduction for the following: (A) The seller's cost of the property sold; (B) The cost of materials used, labor or service cost, interest, losses, all costs of transportation to the seller, all taxes imposed on the seller, and any other expense of the seller;... The retail sale of motor fuels such as gasoline is exempt from sales tax. Thus, when purchased by the seller of services or property, gasoline is not subject to sales tax. However, a separately stated fuel surcharge is an expense that a seller incurs in order to perform a service or sell a product. The taxability of a fuel surcharge follows the taxability of the service provided or the product sold. Thus, if the transaction is for a service or product that is not subject to sales tax, then the fuel surcharge is also not subject to tax. If the transaction is for a service or product that is subject to sales tax, then the fuel surcharge is subject to tax. Example: • A landscaper performs a taxable mowing service at a customer's location. He charges a separately stated "fuel surcharge" on the bill provided to the customer. When this expense is passed along to the customer, it becomes part of the sales price, regardless of whether it is included in a lump-sum charge for the mowing service or separately itemized to the customer, because it is part of the landscaper's overhead cost to perform the taxable service. Therefore, since the service is taxable, the fuel surcharge is also taxable. • A contractor installs a new roof at a customer's location. This installation is a nontaxable service because it results in an exempt capital improvement. He charges a separately stated "fuel surcharge" on the bill provided to the customer. When this expense is passed along to the customer, it becomes part of the sales price, regardless of whether it is included in a lump-sum charge for the installation service or separately itemized to the customer, because it is part of the contractor's overhead cost to perform the nontaxable installation service. Therefore, since the service is not subject to sales tax, the fuel surcharge is also not subject to tax.
