(a) Overview. This section provides rules under which certain registered ultimate vendors of taxed kerosene may claim the income tax credits or payments allowed by section 6427(l)(5)(B)(i). These claims relate to kerosene sold from a blocked pump. Claims relating to kerosene sold for use on a farm for farming purposes and by a State are made by registered ultimate vendors under § 48.6427-9; claims relating to kerosene sold during certain periods of extreme cold for blending with diesel fuel to be used for heating purposes are made by registered ultimate vendors (blending) under § 48.6427-11; and claims relating to kerosene used for nontaxable purposes are made by ultimate purchasers under § 48.6427-8.
(b) Definitions. The following definitions apply to this section:
(1) A blocked pump is a fuel pump that—
(i) Is used to dispense undyed kerosene that is sold at retail for use by the buyer in any nontaxable use;
(ii) Is at a fixed location;
(iii) Is identified with a legible and conspicuous notice stating “UNDYED UNTAXED KEROSENE, NONTAXABLE USE ONLY”; and
(iv)
(A) Cannot reasonably be used to dispense fuel directly into the fuel supply tank of a diesel-powered highway vehicle or diesel-powered train (because, for example, of its distance from a road surface or train track or the length of its delivery hose); or
(B) Is locked by the vendor after each sale and unlocked by the vendor only in response to a request by a buyer for undyed kerosene for use other than as a fuel in a diesel-powered highway vehicle or diesel-powered train.
(2) A registered ultimate vendor (blocked pump) is a person that is registered under section 4101 as an ultimate vendor (blocked pump).
(3) An ultimate vendor (blocked pump) is a person that sells undyed kerosene from a blocked pump.
(c) Conditions to allowance of credit or payment. A claim for an income tax credit or payment with respect to undyed kerosene is allowed by section 6427(l)(5)(B)(i) only if—
(1) Tax was imposed by section 4081 on the kerosene to which the claim relates;
(2) The claimant sold the kerosene from a blocked pump for its buyer's use other than as a fuel in a diesel-powered highway vehicle or diesel-powered train and the claimant has no reason to believe that the kerosene will not be so used;
(3) The claimant is a registered ultimate vendor (blocked pump);
(4) With respect to each sale of more than five gallons of kerosene from a blocked pump that does not meet the conditions of paragraph (b)(1)(iv)(A) of this section, the claimant has in its possession the date of the sale, name and address of the buyer, and the number of gallons sold to the buyer; and
(5) The claimant has filed a timely claim for a credit or payment that contains the information required under paragraph (e) of this section.
(d) Form of claim. Each claim for an income tax credit under this section must be made on Form 4136 (or such other form as the Commissioner may designate) in accordance with the instructions for that form.

(2) The total number of gallons.
(3) A statement by the claimant that—
(i) The kerosene did not contain visible evidence of dye; or
(ii) In the case of kerosene that contains visible evidence of dye, explains the circumstances under which tax was imposed on that kerosene.
(4) With respect to each sale of more than five gallons of kerosene from a blocked pump that does not meet the conditions of paragraph (b)(1)(iv)(A) of this section, a statement by the claimant that it has in its possession the date of the sale, name and address of the buyer, and the number of gallons sold to the buyer.
(5) A statement by the claimant that it—
(i) Has not included the amount of the tax in its sales price of the kerosene and has not collected the amount of the tax from its buyer;
(ii) Has repaid the amount of the tax to its buyer; or
(iii) Has obtained the written consent of its buyer to the allowance of the claim.
(f) Time and place for filing claim. For rules relating to the time for filing a claim under section 6427, see section 6427(i). A claim under this section is not filed unless it contains all the information required by paragraph (e) of this section and is filed at the place required by the form.
