Iowa Ethanol Promotion Tax Credit

Many retailers of ethanol blended gasoline were able to claim this credit on form IA 137 in the past. This credit was repealed on January 1, 2021, and is not available for any gallons sold on or after that date. For calendar year filers, this credit will not be allowed on the 2021 tax return for year ending December 31, 2021. For fiscal year filers, only the portion of gallons sold between the beginning of the fiscal year and December 31, 2020, will be eligible for the credit.


  • Some aspects of TCJA sunset at the end of 2025 – including Section 199A.
  • 19% more tax returns are filed since 2010 and the IRS current budget is 20% less than 2010
