Kilowatt-Hour Tax

Table of Contents

The kilowatt-hour tax was created by the Ohio General Assembly in 2001 as part of a broader legislative effort to deregulate electric utilities. The tax applies to electric distribution companies with end users in Ohio, as well as certain self-assessing commercial or industrial purchasers of electricity. Rates are tiered and vary according to the kilowatt-hour (KwH) consumption of individual end users of electricity.
