The Republican tax plan that President Donald Trump signed into law last month includes a reduction in the highest corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent.

MS utility customers could see their power and gas bills reduced as a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. State law authorizes the UTC to determine how much profit regulated energy, telecom and water companies can earn and what rates the companies can charge its customers.

"We are now analyzing the impact of the tax changes on the cost of service to our customers, and are committed to ensuring that customers benefit from the new tax law", Xcel Energy said in a statement. "And the Utilities Staff now has instructions from us for them to talk with each one of the utilities and start arriving at what that tax savings number is going to be".

"If it is favorable, as it appears. then our job is to look and to see if those savings are material enough to reflect on rates consumers pay for service from the various companies", Public Service Commissioner Brian Kroshus said. According to the UTC, customers may see reduced rates as the proceedings go into effect.

The Republican tax plan passed Congress late a year ago before President Donald Trump signed it just before Christmas. State regulators actively asking these companies for their proposals for state approval.

Puget Sound Energy, Pacific Power and Light and Northwest Natural Gas have filed petitions with the UTC describing the potential changes to their 2018 taxes and estimating any potential excess earnings. The UTC will assess these filings and incorporate the results into future rate cases.
