Follow the money: North Carolina tax insanity
What will governments do if you do switch to an alternative fuel?

Arrest you and force you to pay taxes that you are "evading". Nice.
Bob Teixeira decided it was time to take a stand against U.S. dependence on foreign oil.

So last fall the Charlotte musician and guitar instructor spent $1,200 to convert his 1981 diesel Mercedes to run on vegetable oil. He bought soybean oil in 5-gallon jugs at Costco, spending about 30 percent more than diesel would cost.

His reward, from a state that heavily promotes alternative fuels: a $1,000 fine last month for not paying motor fuel taxes. He has been told to expect another $1,000 fine from the federal government.

The fact is that taxes have never been paid per mile driven, it has always been per gallon of fuel consumed. So where does the government get off claiming that simply by driving you owe taxes?

Now if I read the North Carolina tax statutes correctly their laws levy taxes not on the consumer (although that is the stated target) but on the wholesaler and distributor of fuels. So why are they targeting Bob Teixeira? No doubt you electric car owners are just a heartbeat away from a jail term and hefty fines, too.

Another silly provision of North Carolina's tax laws is that motor carriers are allegedly taxed on the fuel consumed in the state, no matter where you purchase it. Theoretically if you have a company in North Carolina and if you fuel up your 18-wheeler in Virginia and drive through to South Carolina without paying any taxes you are breaking the law.

Tax revolt, anyone?
