According to tax regulations, we must charge sales tax on the full value of the item, including the value of all rebates, discounts or coupons funded by the Ameren Illinois Energy Efficiency Online Store. While not all discounts are funded by the Program (e.g. some manufacturer discounts), you may see an additional item at checkout called "Sales Tax Adjustment."
