Agencies Support the Water Conservation Rebate Tax Parity Act

Agencies Support the Water Conservation Rebate Tax Parity Act

Wednesday, November 22, 2017
Nearly 100 signatories joined the Alliance for Water Efficiency on letters to Congressman Jared Huffman and Senator Diane Feinstein in support of the Water Conservation Tax Parity Act (H.R 448 and S 1464 respectively.)

 
Public utilities in every state offer rebate programs to promote water conservation and storm water management, but the rebates they pay to homeowners are currently seen as taxable income to the recipient. This is in stark contrast to the treatment of similar energy efficiency rebates, which Congress declared non‐taxable in 1992 under Section 136 of the Internal Revenue Code.
