The Town of Somers has instituted Somers Heating Oil Plan, SHOP, in order to save the residents money for home heating oil and by offering bio-fuel to also make our Town "greener". Please read the Plan Requirements.
There are New York State income tax credits associated with the use of bio-fuel. This amounts to $.20 (20 cents) for each gallon of B-20 bio fuel you purchase. B-20 is the type of bio-fuel sold by the suppliers. Please note this is a credit (not a deduction) on your New York State income tax return. Please consult your accountant with any questions.
