In the 2022 legislative session, Kentucky lawmakers enacted a change to sales tax laws. Beginning January 1, 2023, only a person’s “domicile” (primary residence) will be exempt from sales tax on utility services including your water bill.
The 6% sales tax collected goes directly to the Department of Revenue. To make sure the sales tax is not mistakenly applied to the utility bill of your primary residence, some residents need to take action.
Members who have multiple meters in their name need to declare which meter or meter(s) is/are associated with their primary residence. Please email completed forms to firstname.lastname@example.org or bring a printed copy to Calvert City Hall.
Available at Calvert City Hall or at the links below, a Kentucky Department of Revenue form allows utility customers to declare whether the address listed on their utility 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 meters in their name.
For more information, Calvert City Utility users are encouraged to contact their utility providers using the contact information below.
