[Filed June 18, 1997, 3:55 p.m.]
This announcement of the revision and readoption of this advisory
interpretive statement is being published in the Washington State
Register pursuant to the requirements of RCW 34.05.230(4).
The Department of Revenue has revised Excise Tax Bulletin 566 (Low-density light and power utility deduction). This bulletin explains the
public utility tax deduction provided by RCW 82.16.053 to qualifying
power and light businesses.
RCW 82.16.053 requires that the department determine the state average
electric power rate each year and inform taxpayers of this rate. This
rate is used by the power and light business to compute the amount of the
deduction. This revision has been made to provide this rate information.
