Local Gas Tax

Local Tax Payment Process Improvements

Starting on Monday, August 16, 2021, the process by which businesses submit tax documentation and make payments will change. 

Please watch the videos below for more information:

The City of Naperville collects a Local Gas Tax at the rate of four cents ($0.04) per gallon.

Monies from the Local Gas Tax are allocated to the Road and Bridge Fund.

  • Revenues from the Local Gas Tax are approximately $2.6 million annually.
  • This tax helps fund the annual Maintenance Improvement Program (MIP) street resurfacing/reconstruction program.


All businesses must fill out and submit a Motor Fuel Tax Registration Form electronically via My Help Center on the City's website.

It is also recommended that businesses create a My Help Center account to track your tax payments.


The Local Gas Tax is due monthly. Payment of the tax must be made to the City of Naperville no later than the 20th of each month following the month in which the tax was collected. For example, taxes collected during the month of July are due no later than August 20. Along with the tax payment, business owners must submit a completed Motor Fuel Tax Return Form and a copy of either the Illinois Department of Revenue Sales and Use Tax Return Form (ST-1), or the County Motor Fuel Tax form (CMFT-1/CMFT-2), or an internal report.

To file, businesses will first submit their local gas tax documentation to the City electronically via the Help Center on the City's website.

After your tax payment documentation form is approved by the Finance Department, payments can be made:
