Tax Information

Payments provided by utilities (including Fort Collins Utilities) to Participants for the purchase or installation of water conservation measures may in some circumstances be considered as (partially) taxable income by the IRS. Participants or their assigns receiving incentive payments totaling $600 or more during a program year and who are not organized as a corporation will receive a 1099-MISC from Fort Collins Utilities in January or February of the subsequent year. Participant, or alternate payment recipient, may wish to consult a tax advisor on this matter.

What an ENERGY STAR® clothes washer can do for you#

  • They spin up to twice the speed of a conventional washing machine, drying your clothes faster and saving you time.
  • They adjust the water temperature to optimize the effectiveness of modern detergents, giving you the best clean and taking care of your clothes.
  • They accept large, bulky loads, eliminating the need for more loads or trips to the laundromat.
  • They operate smoothly and self-balance the load, keeping the wash quiet and still.

Lower utility bills:

  • Prices have dropped and are now close to the cost of a standard machine.
  • They use 25 percent less energy and 45 percent less water than an old fashioned top loader.
  • A 10-year-old top loader, costs you nearly $200 more per year to operate than a new ENERGY STAR® machine, which quickly makes up the price difference.
