Hello Michael,

I was surprised by your question because I haven’t heard of the gas guzzler tax for years.

However, it is still in effect.

The tax is a sliding scale and is reported on Form 6197.

The tax is required to be reported by the manufacturer or importer of the vehicle on the first use or first lease of the vehicle.

Good luck!
