Act now to claim your primary residence sales tax exemption

Kenergy members with multiple meters need to take action

Beginning January 1, 2023, only a person’s “domicile” (primary residence) will be exempt from sales tax on utility services, including electric bills.

Kenergy is one of 26 electric cooperatives in Kentucky that work together to advocate for electric consumers. These efforts have helped protect the long-standing sales tax exemption for residential energy bills. Though this sales tax exemption remains in place for electric use at a primary residence, Kentucky will begin imposing a sales tax on other properties as of January 1, 2023.

To make sure the sales tax is not mistakenly applied to the electric bill of their primary residence, some co-op members need to take action. Members who have more than one residence in their name need to declare which meter is associated with their primary residence.

Available at Kenergy or at www.kyelectric.coop/taxanswers, a Kentucky Department of Revenue form allows utility customers to declare whether the address listed on their electric bill is their primary residence. Failure to provide a completed declaration form may result in the loss of a sales tax exemption for members who have multiple residential meters in their name.

Kenergy members can send completed forms to: Kenergy, P.O. Box 18, Henderson, KY, 42419 or info@kenergycorp.com.

For more information, members are encouraged to contact Kenergy at 800.844.4832 or visit www.kyelectric.coop/taxanswers.

LIHEAP Fall Subsidy Now Open

Need help with your utility bills? Assistance is now available on a first-come, first-served basis for eligible Kenergy members. Kentucky Community Action Agencies are accepting applications for the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) Subsidy Component. 

The program runs through December 16th or until designated funds are depleted. The previous LIHEAP program ran out of funding before the deadline, and fewer funds are available this year compared to last year. These funds will likely be depleted before December 16th, so apply now.

As a member-owned cooperative, Kenergy is here for you. If LIHEAP funds are not available and you are having trouble paying your bill, please contact us at 800.844.4832 so we can work with you and identify potential resources. 

Alamon Pole Inspections Beginning Today

Alamon, a pole inspection contractor for Kenergy, will begin inspecting poles Wednesday, October 5th. Each wooden pole Kenergy owns, or is attached to, will be inspected to ensure there are no hazards. Inspectors check for decay, insects, cracks, holes, age, and any damage members may have caused.

You may see trucks in your area bearing a ‘Kenergy Contractor’ magnet. Inspectors will also have an Alamon picture ID with them. Inspectors will be working during daylight hours only. Don’t be alarmed if you see the contractors parked for a few hours and/or riding from pole-to-pole on an all-terrain vehicle.

Inspection areas include Centertown, Sacramento, Beech Grove, Hanson, Onton, and Nuckels.

If you suspect something irregular or suspicious, please give us a call at 800.844.4832!

Don’t Tamper With Your Electric Meter

If you or a contractor are planning to work on your home or a project that requires power disconnection, please call to alert Kenergy at least 24 hours in advance. Kenergy will send a representative out to disconnect the meter or service free of cost. Once work is complete and an inspection by a state electrical inspector has been completed, Kenergy will also send a representative to reconnect and re-energize the meter or service free of cost.

Meter tampering is dangerous and illegal. Kenergy is immediately notified when a meter or service has been disconnected. Those caught tampering with Kenergy meters may be prosecuted, and the service will remain disconnected until an inspection has been completed. It is important that you, as a member, understand this law is in place for the safety of you and your home or business. You can read more at lrc.ky.gov with reference to 807 KAR 5:006.

In the event of an emergency, contact Kenergy and a representative will be dispatched to the account at our earliest convenience.
