Duke Energy will not bill customers for taxes
RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Duke Energy says it will not charge customers for corporate income taxes that it does not have to pay.
Company spokeswoman Lisa Parrish has said Duke Energy customers would have paid an extra 17 cents a month and Duke Progress customers would have paid an extra 9 cents a month if the utility followed a procedure authorized by the North Carolina Utilities commission.
The commission earlier this month said utilities could overcharge customers for taxes they are getting some relief from because of a decision by state lawmakers.
The attorney general has said he would appeal the decision allowing the overcharge.
