Low-Income Sales Tax Exemption

Families with an annual income of $12,000 or less are eligible to claim an exemption from sales tax on the first 500 kilowatt-hours of electricity used each month (Ark. Code Ann. § 26-52-416(a)).

To receive this exemption, please complete the exemption claim form and submit it to the Cooperative.

 Please mail the completed exemption form to:

Carroll Electric Cooperative
Attn: Billing Department
PO Box 4000

NOTE:  If you are already receiving the sales tax exemption, you do not need to refile the exemption form. Once the exemption has been claimed, you will continue to receive the exemption until your annual household income exceeds $12,000 or your account is disconnected. It is your responsibility to notify the Cooperative when you no longer qualify for the exemption. Notification must be given to Carroll Electric if the previous year's annual household income exceeded $12,000.
