Important: Kentucky Legislature passed House Bill (HB) 8, impacting some utility customers
Beginning January 1, 2023, the Kentucky Department of Revenue will require certain utility customers to declare their "place of domicile" in order to claim exemption from sales and use tax at their primary residence. KRS 139.470(7) describes a place of domicile as “the place where an individual has his or her legal, true, fixed and permanent home and principal establishment, and to which, whenever the individual is absent, the individual has the intention of returning.

What does that mean for me?
This bill DOES NOT impact residential water/sewer customers with only ONE account or meter. These customers will continue to receive the sales tax exemption.
Utility customers who have multiple accounts/meters, farmers, renters/lessees, or landlords/account holders with multi-unit dwellings served by a master meter will be required to complete the appropriate documents to claim exemption from the sales and use tax on their utilities.
The chart below describes the documents to be provided to the City of Danville Water Department as soon as possible. Click the links to download the required forms.
Forms may also be picked up at the City of Danville Water Department (Danville City Hall).
How to Submit Documents:
1. Mail to City of Danville Water Department, PO BOX 670, Danville, KY 40423
2. E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
3. Deliver to City of Danville Water Department desk at 445 W Main Street in Danville.
Failure to provide the appropriate forms may result in the loss of the sales tax exemption for customers who have multiple meters or accounts in their name.
If you have questions regarding your water/sewer service, please call 859-238-1200 (select Option 1 for Utilities, and Option 1 again to speak with a representative) or e-mail email@example.com
