Utility Franchise Tax Refunds
St. Peters residents who are 62 years and older or those considered totally disabled by Social Security may be eligible to apply for a refund of their 2016 St. Peters utility franchise tax. This is the amount listed on your 2016 electric and gas bills as "St. Peters tax" and on the cable bills as "franchise fees."
To be eligible, your maximum 2016 adjusted gross income excluding any taxable Social Security income must not exceed $39,400 if single or $45,000 if married.
If you meet these criteria, stop by City Hall between April 3 and May 31, 2017 and bring along the following items:
- proof of 2016 income
- proof of age
- 2016 letter of award from Social Security (if disabled)
- 2016 electric, gas and cable bills
You are only eligible for a refund for the months when you were at least 62 years old or considered totally disabled.
