Lights Out - The Home Energy Tax Is History!

happy

Legislator Rose Marie Walker and the Majority members of the Nassau County Legislature are proud to announce that the 2.5% Home Energy Tax imposed by the previous County administration has been repealed.

THE TAX WILL BE REMOVED FROM YOUR UTILITY BILLS AS OF JUNE 1, 2010

Legislator Walker recently stated, “I am grateful to all of the residents who joined the petition drive and contacted me to discuss the repeal of this tax.  The best way to fill budget gaps is to prevent them by cutting spending and running the government more efficiently.  We now have the opportunity to do that.”
