Energy Impact, LLC’s main area of expertise is in obtaining utility sales tax exemptions and refunds for companies’ consumption of energy used in the manufacturing and production process. In 30 states, when your utilities are “necessary and integral to production” you do not have to pay sales tax on those utilities. The utility sales tax exemption is state legislation that is used as an economic incentive to encourage manufacturing and production within the state. Manufacturers are entitled to this utility sales tax exemption, and it could save your company substantial tax dollars moving forward.
In order to obtain utility sales tax exemptions, our firm specializes in performing the required engineering study at your facility on applicable utility meters. This creates an immediate and permanent savings on utility bills each month. Additionally, retroactive studies can be performed to recover all utility sales taxes paid on the meter. Depending on the size of the utility bills, this can be a considerable amount of savings for a manufacturer.
