Self Assess kWh Tax

This is a tax reduction for customers in Ohio using more than 45 million kWh annually.

What is the State kWh Tax?

Ohio’s kWh tax is imposed on electric distribution companies based on the number of kWh distributed to their users throughout Ohio. The distribution companies pass this tax through to their end users on a monthly basis. The tax is broken into three tiers of rates depending on the number of kWh consumed.

How can you save on the kWh Tax?

Ohio Revised Code 5727.81 allows for qualified electric users consuming more than 45 million kWh per year to self-assess the state’s kilowatt-hour tax. The rate at which users can self-assess the state tax is on average 29% lower than the full state tax rate, allowing users to yield savings by taking advantage of this opportunity. For example, a qualified businesses using 50 million kWh can save $53,085 annually from self-assessing.
