PG&E Making $157 Million in Property Tax Payments to 49 California Counties

PG&E announced today (Dec. 11) it is making property tax payments totaling more than $157 million to the 49 counties in which it operates.

This amount, being paid this week, is the first of two annual installments and represents full and timely payment of property taxes due for the period from July 1, 2012 to Dec. 31, 2012.

“Local governments are facing financial challenges and must address public safety, environmental protection, health care, education and other needs with limited resources,” said Mark Caron, PG&E’s vice president of tax. “PG&E’s timely and substantial payments to local governments for property taxes and other fees help them address those vital community services.”

The company’s tax payments to counties for tax year 2012-13 increased by more than $18 million over the previous property tax year’s payments as a result of an increase in assessments due to PG&E’s infrastructure investments. This includes upgrades to improve electric and gas safety, reliability and capacity, as well as energy-generating-station development.
