Carbon Tax

Carbon_Tax_Information

Please read the following important information regarding the Carbon Tax

“Starting January 1, 2017, your gas bill will include a line item for the carbon levy.  This price is applied to fuels that emit greenhouse gases when combusted, including the fuel used to heat your home.  Certain fuels, such as marked gasoline and diesel used on Alberta farms, are exempt from the levy.  Most Albertans will receive a rebate that covers costs associated with the carbon levy.  You don’t need to apply for rebate.  You will automatically receive it if you filed 2015 income tax and meet the income criteria.”Excerpt from the Climate Leadership Plan

 

The Carbon Tax has been made law by Bill 20 and as such Central Peace Natural Gas Co-op is legally responsible to collect it.

You are advised not to withhold the tax as failure to remit payment of the tax will place your account in arrears.

Please direct all questions and concerns to Energy Efficiency Alberta at climate.alberta.ca  or call 310-0000.
