Utility receipts tax repealed

Posted on Jul 10 2022 in Southeastern Indiana REMC

Beginning July 1, Hoosiers will no longer have to pay the utility receipts tax, a state-mandated tax on the sale of utility services.  

The elimination of this state tax was made possible through the efforts of Indiana’s electric cooperatives advocating for their consumers and negotiating with the Indiana General Assembly to repeal this tax, ultimately saving money for each and every electric cooperative consumer across Indiana.  

“Southeastern Indiana REMC works hard for you, our consumer-members, in our community and at the Indiana Statehouse,” said Bryan K. Mathews, general manager at Southeastern Indiana REMC. “As the landscape continues to evolve, we want to ensure our consumers always have access to safe, reliable and affordable energy — now and for years to come.” 

Members will see this tax shown as a credit on the August bill for July energy use. This will be shown as a line item. There is no action consumers need to take.  

Southeastern Indiana REMC actively engages with the Indiana General Assembly to build relationships with legislators, share the impact electric cooperatives have on the state and advocate for our consumer-members like you.
