WTU Will Pass Tax Savings to Customers Savings resulting from the reduction in Federal income taxes will 'be passed on to West Texas Utilities customers according to plans for a system-wide rate reduction an- ouncecl today. These reduc- ions in rates will save cus- omers about $1 million an- ually, approximately 2.8% at his time. Savings will be even greater as electric sales grow. D. C. Powell, WTU local nan-ager, announced that the om'pany pl'aiis to pass on the till benefits of the tax reduc- ion which it will receive un- er the new tax law. Under he new law the income tax on orporations will be reduced in two steps of 2% each. The orpoi'ate income tax will go rom 52% to 50% in 1964 and rom 50% to 48% in 1965. "We are giving customers he .benefit of both .the tax re- Suction already established for 964 and the tax reduction scheduled for 1964," Gal Young, WTU president, said. "Passing this tax saving on to customers in the form of rate reductions will simply leave the company with the same rate of eturn it has been earning." "Such system-wide rate reductions require extensive stu- ly," Young continued. "In addition, after the new rates are lesignated, considerable work will have to be done to adjust our IBM computer billing procedures to these new rates." Young added, "We expect to lave the new rates in effect by mid-summer . . . probably in July or August. Prior to the time the rates are placed in effect, they must be approved 3y each incorporated city." "WTU has a unique record for any industry . . . one of which we are very proud, 1 ' Young pointed out. "WTU has never raised a rate. Through the years we have consistently reduced 1 the cost of service as plant efficiency and improved operations, together with increased customer usage permitted. This planned rate reduction is a continuation of that long-established policy." WTU supplies electric service for Wellington and 165 other West Texas towns and communities in 50 counties extending from the Red River to the Rio Grande.
