How to buy tax-exempt gas in Nova Scotia
In Nova Scotia like most provinces on-reserve purchases of fuel and tobacco products are tax-exempt. Unlike most provinces though, Nova Scotia verifies eligibility through the driver license of an eligible status member. In order to be able to buy tax-exempt fuel and tobacco you must register in the Nova Scotia Indian Fuel Tax Exemption (NSIFTE) Program. It should take approximately 1 to 2 weeks to register in the program.

- Complete the application.
- Bring the filled in application as well as your driver's license, and federal Certificate of Indian Status to your Band Office.
- The Band Office will review and send everything to the Department of Service Nova Scotia and Internal Services.
- Once approved, you'll be able to buy tax-exempt fuel and tobacco at on-reserve retailers.
