LAS VEGAS (KXNT) – The Utility Tax Rebate Program is a program offered by the city of Las Vegas to low-income seniors who reside within the city limits. Seniors ages 60 and up, who qualify receive a rebate on the franchise tax they pay for local utilities throughout the 2017 year.

Applicants must make an income of less than $16,500 for an individual or $18,900 for those filing married/head of household. Applicants must bring copies of their 2017 local NV Energy, Southwest Gas and CenturyLink/Cox telephone bills, photo identification and other supporting documentation to fill out an application. Identification and bills must match physical address. Low-income homeowners ages 60 plus who qualify also may apply for a partial rebate of the annual sewer bill on their primary residence located within the city of Las Vegas.
