Electricity sold for residential heating is exempt from Minnesota sales tax from October through April if
qualified. To qualify, a member must have electric heat as their primary source of heat AND/OR has a
heating source that is metered separately from general service meter.

There are two ways to qualify for this tax exemption:

1. The primary source of residential heat is electricity. If there is only one meter, then all electricity
measured through that meter is tax exempt during the winter heating months.

2. If there is a second meter present that measures the electric heat separately than the rest of the
homes general use.
