City Utility Tax
Auxiliary Accounting is responsible for remitting the City Utility Tax payment to the City of Gainesville on or before the 20th of each month.
Reason for Directive
Section 166.231 of the Florida Statues authorizes cities and “charter” counties to levy a utility tax.
The City of Gainesville, Alachua County, and the City of Alachua all levy a 10% utility tax on electric, gas, and water charges. These tax revenues are passed directly to the levying authority. For the authorized rates for GRU click here.
