Texas Tax Consultants is a company that provides unmatched utility sales tax consultations. As a customer advocate, we minimize tax obligations and maximize restitution, through “Predominant Use Studies”. A “Predominant Use Study” is based on the Texas Comptroller’s Office tax codes (TAC Title 34, Part 1, Chapter 3, Subchapter O, Rule 3.295), which requires such a filing to qualify a facility for state and local sales tax exemption on electricity and natural gas billings.
Our certified engineering study will determine the electricity and gas consumed vs. total usage in the facility. Each electric and/or gas meter at a facility must be studied independently to determine its eligibility for tax exemption. If it can be show that more than 50% of electricity and/or gas passing through a particular utility meter is used directly for tax exempt purposes, then the entire usage through that meter is tax exempt. Texas sales and use tax rates up to 8.25% of electricity and/or natural gas billings can be reduced significantly by eliminating this tax at eligible facilities.
