As the volumetric ethanol excise tax credit
and/or the small ethanol producer credits decrease, the per-gallon credit for cellulosic ethanol production increases by the same amount.
His targets are the 45-cents-per-gallon volumetric ethanol excise tax credit
(VEETC) that refiners get for blending ethanol with gasoline and the 54-cents-per-gallon tariff on imported ethanol.
Under the proposal, the volumetric ethanol excise tax credit
rate would be set at 20 cents per gallon in 2012 and 15 cents per gallon in 2013, down from the existing rate of 45 cents per gallon.
Because of this concern, a Volumetric Ethanol Excise Tax Credit
(VEETC) was proposed.
"While far from an exhaustive study of all contributions," that figure includes $16.7 billion from the volumetric ethanol excise tax credit
(VEETC) or blenders tax credit that has been the subject of debate on Capitol Hill, the report said.

such as the volumetric ethanol excise tax credit
(VEETC) amounting to $0.45 per gallon of blended ethanol are squeezing the margins of competing European producers when the resulting blend is exported to the EU, according to ePURE.
The legislation would repeal the 45-cent-a-gallon Volumetric Ethanol Excise Tax Credit
(VEETC) or "blenders tax credit" popular with the ethanol industry.
Under the new law, the ethanol tax credit--known as the volumetric ethanol excise tax credit
, or VEETC--will continue at its current level of 45 cents through Dec.
Modified refundable tax credit program: After a one-year transition, the current blenders' credit (called the volumetric ethanol excise tax credit
or VEETC) would be changed to a producer tax credit going directly to ethanol plants.
