You may have noticed on your utility bill that there is a line identified as “ET”. The State of Iowa recently exempted the sale of water from the 6% state sales tax and imposed a 6% tax called Water Excise Tax (WET).  WET tax is not an additional tax it just takes the place of sales tax on water service only and adjusts how it will be used by the State. It simply requires the utility to separately itemize water service on the bills. Our billing software provider re-coded our bills so that the information would print correctly.  The first bills that printed had the line for WET tax (ET) but did not add the tax into the total bill.  So bills that printed were off the amount of the WET Tax.  We apologize for the inconvenience and have completed all of the updates for these changes to print correctly. You may ask where will my money go for this WET tax? Per the State of Iowa WET tax guide http://tax.iow.gov.WET the funds will be distributed into two funds-the water quality infrastructure fund and the water quality assistance fund. This money will be provided to the Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship and the Iowa Finance Authority. You may also ask how will this reallocation of tax dollars help me? Just to give you an idea that the City of Buffalo has received $2,500.00 in past grants from Scott County Soil Conservation, this money is filtered through the Land Stewardship programs of Iowa.  Additionally we currently have a low interest loan through Iowa Finance Authority where we were able to give our Waste Water Treatment $466K in updates required for proper operations.
