FPU Requests Updated Information for Tax Exempt Status

Fayetteville Public Utilities is requesting small businesses, churches, and not-for-profits to complete and submit updated information to retain their tax-exempt status. Customers who own a business, a non-profit, or handle finances for a church may need to fill out updated documentation proving their tax-exempt status. The Tennessee Department of Revenue renews these certificates every four years, so that information is kept up to date with the State of Tennessee. New certificates were issued recently for the period of July 1, 2019, through June 30, 2023. 

“This is a relatively new change,” says Dana Pollock, principal accounts/economic development representative for FPU. “It is required that any changes in information be updated with the state and a current signed certificate be sent to FPU to maintain tax-exempt status with FPU.”

Letters were sent out last fall to each customer verifying the tax-exempt status and asking for updated certificates. If you did not receive a letter and believe your small business, non-profit or church needs to be tax-exempt or have any other question call FPU at 931-433-1522 ext. 123.
