NG00-008 In the Matter of the Filing by MidAmerican Energy Company for Approval of a Refund Plan for 2000 Distribution of Kansas Ad Valorem Tax Refund.

Application by MidAmerican Energy to refund amounts related to Kansas Ad Valorem taxes paid from 1983 to 1988. The refund is a result of Kansas property taxes being added to natural gas prices resulting in prices that exceeded the maximum lawful price of natural gas pursuant to the Natural Gas Policy Act of 1978. MidAmerican previously requested deferral of this refund until a final determination of the refund amount was decided by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) or the courts. MidAmerican is now filing a refund plan to initiate the refund at this time subject to true up of the final amount as determined by the FERC, the courts or a settlement of the parties in this matter.
