Legislation (A.B. 1874) was introduced to eliminate the requirement that $833,000 from OHV taxes and fees be transferred to the General Fund and not be given to the Off-Highway Vehicle Fund. The bill is currently in the Assembly Committee on Transportation.
Existing law imposes an excise tax on motor vehicle fuel (gasoline) and requires these taxes to be deposited in the Motor Vehicle Fuel Account. The law also requires the moneys attributable to the excise tax on gasoline related to specified off-highway motor vehicles and off-highway vehicle activities be transferred monthly from the Motor Vehicle Fuel Account to the Off-Highway Vehicle Trust Fund.
