Iowa incentives, combined with federal programs,
help make the economics favorable for blending Iowa
biodiesel into diesel. 

State Incentive Programs

  • Biodiesel Retailer Credit: Retailers carrying 5 percent biodiesel (B5) can claim a 3.5 cents-per-gallon incentive. Retailers carrying B11 or higher can claim a 5.5 cents-per-gallon incentive. Apply for the Blenders Tax Credit (form 8864)
  • B11 Fuel Tax Differential: A 3-cent differential in Fuel Tax for blends of 11 percent or higher.
