Sales Tax Exemptions

Sales of electricity, gas, water, or steam in Minnesota are typically taxable. However, there are some exemptions for residential water and some residential heating fuels.

If you use electricity to heat your home, you may qualify for a Minnesota sales tax exemption. Members with electric heat as their primary heating system are exempt from sales tax from November through April.

Commercial sales tax exemptions

Some Connexus Energy business members may be eligible for a full or partial exemption from Minnesota sales tax. The state allows exemptions for a percentage of utilities used directly in industrial or agricultural production. General space heating and lighting are excluded from this exemption.

Business members must complete the Certificate of Exemption (ST3) from the Minnesota Department of Revenue and submit to Connexus Energy.
