The City of Bloomington created this web page to focus primarily on upcoming street/sidewalk projects funded through Local Motor Fuel Tax (LMFT). This is in addition to signage, flyers, social media posts, and press releases the City will provide in order to keep the public informed about street maintenance projects in the City. The revenue generated by the now eight-cent LMFT, and one-quarter of one percent of the Home Rule Sales Tax, is kept separate in a special fund that can only be utilized for this work.
LMFT Revenue and Expense Data Coming Soon!
There is a time lag between when LMFT is collected and when it is reported. The City anticipates having the first set of data to report sometime in the next few weeks and will make it available as soon as possible.

What is the difference between the Local Motor Fuel Tax and the State’s Motor Fuel Tax?
The Local Motor Fuel tax is in addition to the State’s motor fuel tax.

Who is liable for the Local Motor Fuel Tax?
It is the responsibility of any business owner who thinks they may be subject to this tax to implement and remit this tax to the City.
Although the Local Motor Fuel Tax can be passed on to patrons, the business owner is liable for collecting and submitting this tax to the City. Each Business will need to determine the best mechanism for charging and collecting this tax.
