By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

Minnesota has introduced legislation to mandate payment of a “recoupment” surcharge of up to $95.

Legislation to mandate payment of a “recoupment” surcharge of up to $95 has been introduced in Minnesota. The surcharge would be calculated to levy the highest tax on owners of the most fuel-efficient vehicles. Separate legislation requires the Department of Transportation to take steps to implement a vehicle mileage user fee to tax drivers on actual miles driven.
