GRU Customers Hopeful For Refund
Gainesville, Florida -- GRU customers are still waiting to see if they will give them a refund or not.
Jim Konish filed a request for his own personal refund from GRU on June 5.
He says that they're overtaxing customers.
Officials with the Alachua County Seniors vs. Crime office say thousands of GRU customers may be eligible for a 30 dollar refund, after the utility wrongly applied a 10 percent municipal tax to the electric customer charge on their monthly bills.
State law orders utilities can only apply the tax on items in the bill that vary, based on a person's electric usage, also known as consumables.
GRU has 90 days from June 5 to respond to Konish on whether they're going to give him his refund or deny it.
