TIP # 03B06-01
DATE ISSUED: January 17, 2003

Gross Receipts Tax for Utility Services (Electric or Gas Receipts)
Filing Status Changed to Monthly Beginning January 1, 2003

Your gross receipts tax account has been changed to a monthly reporting status effective January 1, 2003. This change is required because you paid more than $1,000 in gross receipts tax during the past four calendar quarters. You will receive a personalized gross receipts tax return (Form DR-133) for the month of January and each month thereafter. If you do not receive a monthly return by late January, please call the telephone number listed below.

Monthly returns are due by the last day of each month, remitting the tax due for the preceding month. Your first monthly return is due on or before February 28, 2003.

Note: This change applies only to your filing frequency with the Department of Revenue for gross receipts tax for utility services (electric or gas receipts). This change does not affect any other tax filings you may have with the Department or taxes administered by a local government.
