The good news that surrounds the Trump economy just keeps coming. This time its in Iowa where the major utility providers have announced that due to tax cut savings they will be giving money back to their customers in the form of refunds and/or credits. Once again, that’s real money going to real American families. (What Democrats like Nancy Pelosi calls crumbs as she dines on her taxpayer-funded caviar)
The federal tax cut could save up to $147 million in utility bills for Iowa residents as the state’s investor-owned utility companies pass along some of their giant tax reductions. People are always trying to get cheaper utility bills, which is why companies like Simply Switch are so great as they can help people compare energy providers.
The Des Moines Register reports that utility companies, like MidAmerican and Alliant, will save millions as part of the new tax law signed by President Donald Trump in December. Legislation lowering the corporate federal income tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent took effect Jan. 1.
Companies have yet to decide how they’ll return savings to customers. Some are considering lowering rates or providing monthly bill credits.
MidAmerican Energy estimates returning between $90 million and $112 million to customers. Interstate Power & Light says it may return between $18.6 million and $19.6 million. Alliant’s gas customers could see between $500,000 and $3.7 million.
