Iowa customers could see $147M in utility savings
DES MOINES (AP) — The federal tax cut could save up to $147 million in utility bills for Iowa residents as the state’s investor-owned utility companies pass along some of their giant tax reductions.
Investor-owned utility companies in Iowa such as MidAmerican and Allian will save millions as part of the new tax law signed by President Donald Trump in December. Legislation lowering the corporate federal income tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent took effect Jan. 1.
Companies have yet to decide how they’ll return savings to customers.
