Does your company qualify for a utility sales tax exemption in Indiana?

If you run a business

You may qualify for the tax exemption if your business operations primarily revolve around:

  • Fabrication and manufacturing
  • Mining
  • Agricultural production
  • Food and beverage processing
  • Nursing and providing home assistance living services
  • Equipment and infrastructure repairing

Of course, there are exceptions in each category, and therefore it’s recommended that you consult your individual case to a utility tax expert in Indiana for more tailored guidance.

If you run a non-profit

Not many non-profit trustees and directors are aware of it, but even non-profits can claim tax savings on their utility purchases. You just have to prove the utility is used to support your organization’s goals and objectives.

For instance, if you run a non-profit that works to deploy telehealth units in underserved areas, you can make an exemption case for the electricity utilized to power treatment related equipment (computer, imaging modalities etc.).
