Could your company be missing out on significant sales tax savings on your utility use? Many states allow a sales tax exemption on electricity, natural gas, and water when used in manufacturing, processing, fabrication, assembly, agriculture, and mining activities.

A utility study can help reduce utility costs associated with your manufacturing processes by helping you correctly identify what qualifies for the exemption in each state.

At the end of this session, you will be able to:

  • Recognize the purpose of a utility study and the requirements to take advantage of sales and use tax exemptions
  • Identify facilities that are good candidates for a utility study
  • Outline the process for determining the exempt utility usage percentage
  • Identify if your business has opportunities to claim exemptions on an ongoing basis and refunds for overpaid sales and use tax paid from past utility bills
