WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit on Thursday upheld a lower court ruling that Sunoco (SUN.N) not be allowed to claim $1 billion in alcohol fuel mixture credits on its federal excise tax returns, the U.S. Justice Department said.

In a statement, the department said Sunoco sought to reduce its federal income taxes with an excise tax expense that was never paid. It said the appeals court’s decision upholding a ruling by the Court of Federal Claims was “precedential.”
