Gas Rebate: Who’s eligible?
According to Missouri’s Department of Revenue, the residents need:
- ID of the vehicle and number of the vehicle
- Date of gas sales
- Name and address
- Address of the seller and name
- Gallons purchased
- Taxes charged
You should have your receipts from gas stations, and your vehicles must weigh 26,000 pounds or less to be eligible.
If you charged gas in Missouri and still have your receipt, you are eligible for the rebate.
“Out-of-state drivers can also file for the refund so long as they are filing for gas that was purchased in Missouri and have the receipts to prove it,” the Kansas City Star mentioned.
