Beginning September 1, 2012 Rockland County is imposing a 4% sales and use tax on homeowners for energy sources and services. For those homeowners that are currently purchasing their energy from an Energy Services Company (ESCO) they will be exempt from sales tax on the O&R delivery charges. Therefore, the net effect of the tax will only be 2% for homeowers who have an alternate energy supplier. If you are still purchasing your energy from O&R then the effect will be the total tax imposed of 4%. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us 1-866-610-SAVE (7283).
