JANUARY QUARTERLY ELECTRIC & STATE TAX
Quarterly Electric and State Tax are billed in January, April, July and October. Electric meters are read once per year in August. Your bill is based on total kilowatt hours used. You pay for your adjusted final electric use in October, then your total use is divided by four and you pay those quarterly amounts in January, April and July. This is why you get an electric bill in January even though you may not be in the park during that time. You can view and print your annual electric use by logging into your Member Web Access Portal. State Tax is billed at $9.50 per quarter, per site.
We’ll be sending renewal notices after the first of the year. If you have an email address on file, your notice will be sent electronically, otherwise your notice will be sent by mail. If you have not received your renewal notice by February 1st, please call Member Service. Please note: Your renewal notice is not a bill. You have until March 15th to update, add or remove renewal services before being billed on your April 1st statement. Renewals include membership cards, annual stickers, internet service if applicable, pump-out plans, boat docks, boat in & out service, bullpen storage and mailboxes. The notices will include instructions. Please review your renewals carefully and make sure the information is accurate. If you don’t need any changes, you do not have to return your renewal form. Send the form back only if you make changes and we’ll confirm your updates. Credit will not be issued for membership cards not removed from the account by March 31st.
