About 3,000 Louisiana taxpayers have been given notice that they will not be getting their tax credit on flex fuel vehicles because of an emergency ruling.

Last year's ruling allowing vehicles to participate in the alternative fuel credit was rescinded.

The Louisiana Department of Revenue says that denial letters for alternative fuel credits were sent out in February and March.  Tax returns were in limbo after Governor Bobby Jindal rescinded an April 30 ruling by former revenue Secretary Cynthia Bridges to include the flex fuel cars.

A 2009 alternative fuel law created that credit to admit to  encourage people to convert their cars to be able to burn alternative fuel.  The ruling by Bridges expanded eligible vehicles to include flex fuel automobiles.
