- New ruling reinstates Sales Tax on transport of electricity
Senator Bruno released new leadership and committee assignments this week. For a copy of the assignments, please contact us at 800/358-1202.
The State Department of Taxation and Finance, last week, ruled that transportation of electricity is subject to sales tax - a ruling that may increase energy costs for customers by 5 percent, and interfere with the transition to a competitive marketplace. The new Tax Department ruling reverses a decision the agency made two years ago as the Public Service Commission was restructuring and deregulating the electric industry.
