Local consumer utility tax; tax rate. Provides that the local consumer utility tax shall not exceed $3 in any month for residential customers. Currently, the local consumer utility tax may be imposed at a rate not to exceed 20 percent, and up to the first $15 charged in each month by the utility for residential customers. This results in a cap of $3 per month for residential customers. The bill would not change the monthly cap but would allow the tax rate to apply to amounts billed in excess of $15 while maintaining the $3 per month cap. Read the Bill »
