About Us Take Action Co-ops Vote

Stop the residential power tax in Kentucky!

Did you know there is talk about adding a sales tax to your residential power bill? That’s right, some elected officials have floated this idea as a potential revenue source. Conversations about a residential power sales tax are happening now. If this idea passes, every time you flip a light switch, turn on your washer and dryer, or use any power- you’ll be taxed!

Don’t delay! Take action today by using the form to the right to Stop the Residential Power Sales Tax!

Under current law, residential electric bills are exempt from the state’s 6% sales tax. But if the exemption is removed, it could cost some consumer-members hundreds of dollars per year.

As your electric providers, Kentucky’s 26 electric co-ops are committed to stopping a sales tax on your residential power bill:

  • Adding any additional tax to electric bills would have a devastating impact on rural Kentuckians.
  • Most rural counties don’t have access to natural gas, which means a reliance on electric heat.
  • The prevalence of housing in rural Kentucky that is not as energy-efficient also results in more electric usage.

Co-ops are owned by the people we serve, and this is an important time for all of us to speak up against a tax on residential power bills.

We all must work together to keep our bills as low as possible.
