Memphis Light, Gas and Water is the nation's largest three-service municipal utility, serving more than 420,000 customers. Since 1939, MLGW has met the utility needs of Memphis and Shelby County residents by delivering reliable and affordable electricity, natural gas and water service. In fact, MLGW's rates are lower than those of many comparable cities.



Manufacturers Tax Exemption:
Electricity and natural gas are normally taxed at the rate of 7.0% for both non-manufacturers and manufacturers; water is taxed at the state and local combined rate of 9.25% for non-manufacturers and manufacturers. Manufacturers may be granted either a full exemption or a reduced rate of 1.5% if the energy fuel or water comes in direct contact with the product. An Industrial Machinery Authorization Exemption Certificate must be on file with the state to support the exemption or reduced rate. The certificate must contain the same name and address information as the MLGW account. If information differs, obtain a new tax form from the Tennessee Department of Revenue and send MLGW the corrected version.

Religious and non-profit organizations Tax Exemption:
MLGW also waives utility taxes for qualified religious and non-profit organizations that have been declared tax exempt by the Tennessee Department of Revenue. Eligible organizations can submit a copy of their official Certificate of Exemption to have the account's tax status updated. The certificate must contain the same name and address information as the MLGW account. If information differs, obtain a new tax form from the Tennessee Department of Revenue and send MLGW the corrected version.

For information on tax exemption certificates, contact the State of Tennessee Sales Tax Department at 1-800-342-1003.
