What about Monongahela Power? ANSWF.JR: Like you, we must pay all legally required taxes and, like you, we conform to all tax regulations and make careful use of legally permitted deductions. We are NOT exempt from paying taxes. In 1974, 12'/= cents of every dollar we received from our customers went to pay taxes, and the total tax bill amounted to $16.2 million. That included state gross sales taxes, property taxes and federal income taxes. The 1974 total was $4.6 million greater than in 1970... up more than 40%. In addition, some 40 municipalities in West Virginia levy varying sales taxes and other special taxes on customers' electric bills. In 1974, these municipal taxes amounted to over $1.1 million--more than twice the amount for 1970. The Company must collect these taxes and tum them over to the respective municipality. As long as Monongahela's tax bills keep going up--along with all the other costs of doing business--the cost of electricity will keep going up. For more information on how inflation af- fects our business and the price you pay for electricity, please write to our Customer Services Department.
