What is the “non-taxable fuel amount” printed on my electric bill statement?

Under Chapter 166.231 of the Florida Statutes, the State of Florida allows a municipal or county government to implement a public service tax (sometimes referred to as a "utility" or "municipal" tax) on the purchase of electricity.

Under statutory guidelines, the increase in the cost of fuel to the utility after October 1, 1973 must be excluded from the amount taxed. Therefore, the amount identified on the bill as "non-taxable fuel" represents Clay Electric’s excludable fuel cost when calculating the public service tax.

Note: On your bill statement, the tax exemption amount has automatically been computed with the exclusion, based on the requirements of your particular public service tax, if applicable. If you have any questions about the non-taxable fuel amount, please call your local district office.
