The Office of Foreign Missions administers the utility tax exemption program. Utility tax exemption (e.g. electricity, natural gas, cellular phones, and telephone) is based on reciprocity and is granted upon request and submittal of a completed request of Exemption from Utility Taxes.

Procedures to Apply for Utility Tax Exemption :

Using the Department’s E-government Program, complete a request of Exemption from Utility Taxes for each utility company to which a request is being made. If more than one account is being held with a company (for example, each phone line/number is a separate account) one form for each account must be completed.

*New York state requires submission of Form DTF-950 through OFM along with the request of Exemption from Utility Taxes.
