What I need IRS Form 8849 Schedule 1 for?

As an ultimate purchaser of fuel, you can use Schedule 1 to make a claim for tax refund. However, there are some requirements to be met:

  • The total amount claimed should exceed $750. You can make such claim for any quarter of your tax year or simply aggregate amounts from multiple quarters to reach that level;
  • Your claim must be filed during the first quarter following the last quarter included in the claim. That means a claim including amounts from months of January through March and April through June must be filed between July 1 and September 30. Only one claim is allowed for every quarter.
