POTENTIAL KANSAS LEGISLATION TO CHARGE STATE SALES TAX ON YOUR NATURAL GAS BILLS
The members of the Kansas Legislature are considering a repeal of a long-standing state sales tax exemption on residential utility bills, SB261. If this legislation passes, City of Uniontown, will have to charge state sales tax on energy used for residential utility service.
This would mean your monthly utility bill would increase by the state sales tax of 6.15%, around July 1 of this year. (There is also a proposal to increase the state sales tax to 6.3%)
This state sales tax is NOT a rate increase by City of Uniontown. The law requires us to collect and send in this sales tax to the State of Kansas.
Please contact your Kansas legislators and let them know you oppose this increase on your monthly utility bill.
Ask your legislators NOT to repeal the state sales tax exemption for residential utility service.
Your Legislators are: Adam Lusker, firstname.lastname@example.org, Rm 43-S State Capitol Building, 300 SW 10th St, Topeka, KS 66612, 785-296-7698 and Caryn Tyson, Caryn.Tyson@senate.ks.gov, Rm 236-E State Capitol Building, 300 SW 10th St, Topeka, KS 66612, 785-296-6838.
