Tax Webinars 2018 

Water Service Excise Tax – Joe Fraioli and Marsha Peterson – June 6 - 1:00 p.m.  (Watch Recorded Webinar)
Download the Presentation: WATER SERVICE EXCISE TAX - June 2018 Presentation Final

  • In 2018, the Iowa legislature passed a new law, SF 512, effective July 1, 2018, which creates a Water Service Excise Tax (WET). Prior to the enactment of this law, the sale of water was subject to the 6% state sales tax. The WET exempts the sale of water service from state sales tax, but imposes a 6% excise tax on the sale of water service. This webinar will cover all of the basics of the tax, how to register for a WET permit, when to file returns and deposits, and common Q&A's.
