Notes:

Distributors are companies or individuals who make the first distribution of gasoline in California, and are responsible for payment of the tax. (Aircraft manufacturers and certificated or licensed carriers by air may be included within the definition of distributor.) "Broker" includes every person, other than a distributor or a retailer, who deals in lots of 200 or more gallons of gasoline.

Adjustments include temperature-corrected gallonage from broker returns, late returns, audits, interest, and penalties
