CT GROSS RECEIPTS TAX NOTICE



We have been advised that the Connecticut Department of Revenue Services, in their most recent budget session, failed to pass legislation to eliminate a tax that affects Connecticut propane customers. Only those who have multiple uses off of a propane tank that also feeds a generator are affected.

Connecticut is assessing a Gross Receipts Tax (aka Gross Earnings Tax) whenever we deliver to a tank connected to a generator, even if it also supplies an exempt heating use (such as home, pool, hot water, cooking, etc.). This tax, currently 8.81%, will now be assessed on your delivery ticket where applicable.

Per Conn. Gen. Stat. 12-587, in order to be exempt from this tax, the propane "must be used exclusively for heating purposes". Because the propane to a generator produces electricity and not heat, this tax has always been assessed on deliveries to tanks which solely supply generators.

Representatives from the CT membership of the Propane Gas Association of New England met with DRS staff earlier this month to get a firm understanding of their position on this matter, and it was made clear that the State will be assessing the tax for deliveries into multiple use generator tanks until such time as the tax law is changed. We will be continuing our efforts to seek a legislative fix in the 2016 session.

If your non-generator use is significant and is shared from a tank that also supplies your generator, and you'd like to explore getting a separate tank just for your generator, please call us so we can come out and prepare a proposal for you.

We appreciate your understanding on this matter and please do not hesitate to contact our office if you have any questions.
