Our Process
01. Discovery

SmartSave investigates the business's current utility situation, and quickly identifies if the business is eligible to save through the Utility Sales Tax Exemption.

02. Energy Study

SmartSave exemption specialists perform a detailed predominant use study at the business location to determine the exact percentage of energy that qualifies for the Utility Sales Tax Exemption.

03. Request

All necessary information is compiled into a report and submitted to the required utility companies and state agencies. SmartSave works hand-in-hand with these entities to ensure that all reports are accurate and compliant with statute.

04. Certification

Once the exemption request is approved, the business receives a refund on the past 2-4 years of overpaid utility sales tax, and stops paying sales tax on all certified production items, generating significant savings each month moving forward.

I am glad we partnered with SmartSave to confirm our utility consumption for tax management needs. They arrived on site and took ownership of the survey making the time spent for me minimal. It was obvious they were experienced, well prepared and performed the survey quickly without any interference to our operations. Documentation was complete, professionally formatted and arrived in a timely manner. I am a very satisfied customer and would recommend SmartSave.
