The Massachusetts Department of Revenue (DOR) has recently repealed and replaced a regulation regarding the qualifying small business energy exemption.

Under the new regulation, the requirements for being considered a small business will remain the same, but the process for claiming the exemption will change. Effective January 1, 2019, businesses will no longer provide Form ST-13 to their energy provider(s) when making purchases of gas, steam, electricity, or heating fuel. Instead, they will need to register as a qualifying small business with the DOR using the online portal MassTaxConnect.

After a small business has registered and obtained a Small Business Exemption (SBE) Certificate from the Department, it should notify its energy provider before purchasing energy.

The prior version of the regulation will continue to apply to purchases made on or before December 31, 2018. Current exemptions have been automatically extended to March 31, 2019. After March 31, 2019, all previously issued ST-13 exemption certificates can no longer be used.
