If a utility makes a payment to you for your purchase or installation of water conservation equipment, the rebate may be considered (partially) taxable income by the IRS. If you receive rebate payments totaling $600 or more within one calendar year, and you are not organized as a corporation, Fort Collins Utilities will send you a 1099-MISC from in January or February of the following year. You may wish to consult a tax advisor if you plan to exceed $600 in rebates.
