We apologize for this inconvenience and we are providing this information to further explain the recent email, mailer, or phone call you may have received regarding your previous service account with Great American Power and the potential sales tax obligation under the guideline of the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue.
During a sales tax audit in 2018, for a period of service between 2015 and 2017, The PA Department of Revenue has identified your account as a non-taxed taxable sale based on one of the following:
(1) Those accounts coded residential but may be commercial (as suggested by the account name)
(2) Those accounts coded commercial but not taxed
(3) Duplicates--names showed up on more than one account and might signify a landlord or commercial relationship
(4) Accounts where the service and billing addresses are not the same, again suggesting a possible landlord/tenant or commercial relationship
The company has continued to dispute this matter with the PA tax office and we have a final upcoming appeal scheduled which requires the company to either provide an affidavit disputing this matter or the company is obligated to collect the appropriate sales tax as calculate for the period of service.
Please review the affidavit and respond appropriately so we can resolve this matter as required by the PA Department of Revenue. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our customer care at 1-877-215-4140.
As further validation of this assessment, we are providing you with a redacted tax assessment from the PA Department of Revenue Bureau of Audits' summary. Please feel free to click on the link below for this additional information regarding this matter.
