A renewable fuel registrant (Letter of Registration for Tax Free Transactions with a suffix code -AB-, -NB- or -CB-) will be issued a BCN for each biodiesel production physical location that a registrant in good standing operates. A renewable fuel registrant (Letter of Registration for Tax Free Transactions with a suffix code -AF-) will be issued a ECN for each ethanol production physical location that the that a registrant in good standing operates. A taxable fuel registrant in good standing having both an approved terminal and refinery operating at the same physical location will be issued both a TCN and either a RCN, BCN or ECN, depending on the fuel produced.

Transactions with a suffix code -S-) will be issued a TCN or RCN for 
each approved terminal or refinery physical location that a registrant 
in good standing operates. A renewable fuel registrant (Letter of 
Registration for Tax Free Transactions with a suffix code -AB-, -NB- or 
-CB-) will be issued a BCN for each biodiesel production physical 
location that a registrant in good standing operates. A renewable fuel 
registrant (Letter of Registration for Tax Free Transactions with a 
suffix code -AF-) will be issued a ECN for each ethanol production 
physical location that the that a registrant in good standing operates. 
A taxable fuel registrant in good standing having both an approved 
terminal and refinery operating at the same physical location will be 
issued both a TCN and either a RCN, BCN or ECN, depending on the fuel 
produced.
    Each taxable fuel registrant issued a TCN, BCN or ECN will have a 
monthly ExSTARS filing requirement. The FCN list is available at http://www.irs.gov/excise.

What is an approved Terminal?

    Approved motor fuel terminals, as defined by Code section 4081 and 
the related regulations, receive taxable fuel via a pipeline, ship, or 
barge, deliver taxable fuel across a rack or other non-bulk delivery

registered in good standing with the IRS. Only those taxpayers, who are 
registered with the IRS on registration for Tax-Free Transactions--Form 
637 (637 Registration) with a suffix code of ``S'' may operate an 
approved terminal. Each TCN identifies a unique physical location in 
the bulk transport/delivery system and is independent of the registered 
operator. The TCN for a physical location will not change even if the 
owner/operator changes.

What is an approved renewable fuel production facility?

    Approved renewable fuel production facilities are facilities that 
produce methyl esters in the case of biodiesel and denatured alcohol in 
the case of ethanol and are operated by a 637 registrant in good 
standing. Renewable fuel registrants (those having Letter of 
Registration for Tax Free Transactions with a suffix code -AB-, -NB- or 
-CB-) will be issued a BCN for each biodiesel production physical 
location. A renewable fuel registrant (Letter of Registration for Tax 
Free Transactions with a suffix code -AF-) will be issued an ECN for 
each ethanol production physical location that the registrant operates
