THE POTOMAC EDISON COMPANY
Petition to address the effect of the 2017 Tax Cuts and
Jobs Act on Accumulated Deferred Income Taxes
NOTICE OF FILING AND HEARING
On December 30, 2020, Monongahela Power Company (Mon Power) and the Potomac Edison Company (PE) (collectively Companies) filed a Petition to determine the Companies’ net excess accumulated deferred income taxes (ADIT) due to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of2017 (TCJA) (Petition). According to the Companies, there are combined property-related excess and deficient ADIT balances of approximately $286.8 million and combined non-property excess and deficient ADIT balances of approximately $28.7 million. The Companies are proposing rate treatment for net excess and deficient ADIT, over a proposed 10-year amortization period, to be reflected in the Companies’ next Expanded Net Energy Cost (ENEC) rates. The Companies also propose to apply net excess ADIT accrued from 2018 through 2021 as an offset to COVID-19 related expenses.
The Petition is on file with and available for public inspection at the Commission, 201 Brooks Street, in Charleston, West Virginia, and is available online at the Commission website (www.psc.state.wv.us).
